hydro lift belt

Recommended Posts

The hydro belt is a real PITA. There's really no short cuts. Remove the batt side cover, remove the 2 bolts and spacers that attach the flex disc to the flywheel, loosen the 3 nuts that secure the hydro-pump slide the pump downward and replace the belt. On occasion I have found it helpful to loosen the 4 engine to frame bolts to allow a little wiggle to the engine to help reinstall the flex disc bolts. I also use a 3/8ths drive air gun on the flex disc bolts rather than swinging a wrench or ratchet in that tight area. Just my 2 cents worth value accordingly.

I have a narrow jawed vice grip pliers which I find very useful to re-install the spacers and/or washers between the disc and engine. My old fumble fingers just don't work well in small spaces. If your srarter generator belt is worn, it is also a good idea to change it when you have the drive shaft loose.

I have a 10" straight and a 10" curved locking forceps that I bought for $3.00ea at a farm show. It has become one of my handiest tools I have especially for attaching nuts in to bolts in tight spots An example http://www.amazon.com/Forceps-Curved-Hemostat-Stainless-Steel/dp/B006MBHNX8

When I reassembled my HB112 with hydro-lift I placed the drive shaft through an extra starter/generator belt and hydro-lift belt and plastic tied them both aside. The hydro-lift belt I placed on the engine flywheel screen/cover and the start/gen belt on the back of the housing next to the battery and fuel tank. That way if one of the drive belts fails I just have to cut it out, free the appropriate spare belt and install it. Don't have to disassemble anything to replace the belt that way. By the way, the hydro-lift spare belt has been in place on the flywheel screen/cover for two seasons with no problem...just make sure to place the belt symmetrically around the screen/cover for balance...and use plenty of plastic ties.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
