Default Belt Drive / Gilmore Kit for track car

Hey All,

Just wondering if anyone has or knows of a belt drive kit to fit their engine or if kits from another engine can be adapted?



Many thanks
James

Yeah, I'm not sure what the point of that is. Cogged belts are designed to prevent belt slip, but if you're having a problem with belt slip on your alternator it's probably because it's dead. Buy a new alternator, not a silly cogged pulley setup!

You don't need all that. Just run a short belt to the alternator and it's fine. This is mine.

The high pitch whine comes for the gears on the blower driven by the cogged belt, not from the belt itself.

A whistle tip would be cheaper.
