Ok so I am trying to straighten up things that previous owners have umm, well not quite done correctly. So far it's been simple, but time consuming, adjustments (valves, carburetor, air pressure) Today I replaced damaged petcocks, and near original valve cover and crankcase gaskets (I say near original due to them having been painted over at least twice) and in the process of checking the valve lash or gap discovered two spark plugs just finger tight.
So now you see what I am fighting, here's my head scratcher. Someone converted this tractor ('51 Super C) to 12v, and is running two belts. One from the idler pulley to alternator only, and one runs from the crank pulley to idler, and water pump. The one for the alternator is tight, and seems serviceable but the other one squeals nearly constantly, and the idler / tensioner pulley is at the end of it's stroke.
So do I try to get this all on one belt?? How can I determine or find a better fitting belt to get rid of that squeal?
Thanks for all replies
