Fan Belts:

Thermosetting:

Fan Belts shrink when they heat up (thermosetting) so always set and check them hot. If you set them to the correct tension cold they will shrink and tear up Water Pump and Alternator Bearings when the Engine heats up.

Water Pump Pulley and Fan Belt Length:

The water pump pulley on HQ onwards is slightly larger than the ones on a 186 ,using the small hub water pumps. Wombat.
