H fan belt

Postby bear4work » Wed Jan 24, 2007 9:00 pm

How do you tighten the fan belt and the one going to the generator on an H? Thanks for any help. 8)

The water pump pulley on the H is a variable width pulley. There is a setscrew in the side of the pulley. Loosen it and use a soft drift to tighten or close up the gap in the pulley halves.
I believe the generator belt is tightened by the generator position.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I don't know about later ones, but earlier H had an adjustable pulley on generator also.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

You are both right, but you forgot to tell about the sheves are usually rusted shut and are VERY easily broken,---may be awfully hard to find nowdays, as most of them broke because no-one ever lubed them and worked them as part of normal tractor maint.!! thanks; sonny
