Gti-6 Conversion Alternator Bracket And Tensioning
Posted 18 September 2006 - 05:57 PM
The question is: is there a xu iron block engine that has no ps or AC from which i can rob the alternator mounting bracket and have some way of tensioning the belt? I have seen some people make there own alt tensioning bracket and saw pas pump brackets off but there must be an iron block engine which alraey has a propper setup (306, 406, ZX, 405 etc)?

As you said above, i just made up a bracket so i could tension the belt the same way as you would with a 205 w/o PAS and AC

i think it could be s16. just seen a pic and there is no pas pump on top and there is s belt tensioner stay but maybe the ps pump sits below alternator?
Get a complete top mount from S16, 405 Mi16 2.0, 405 T16, 306 XSi 16v.. maybe some citroens got it too.
And get an alternator bracket from a 2.1 TD engine.

Actually looking at the belt in the photo I think it reads 720 : so PK 720

I am putting power steering onto my car so am now after a pic to show how it should be set up by using original gti6 tensioners etc. Am ideally after a pic of the tensioner and belt routing etc, but NO air conditioning.

What belt is that you have used there?
Posted 30 September 2006 - 05:50 PM
Belt I have was bought from a belt supplier in exeter. Code PK 720 i believe. Any belt supplier should be able to supply or ill get you one from exeter if needed and send it on if you need me too as they are just around the corner from my work.

the lower mountings on the alt are too close to fit on the mountings on the engine.hmmmm??
is that a standard gti6 bracket on there? and what alt is it , i got a 1.9 one but i'm guessing they are all the same?
take a look you can see that on the left the bracket just wont fit .
any ideas or am i just being thick

you will need a gti6 alternator not the 8v one
ah i see that would be why then .
will any 16v alternator fit? or must it be gti6?
obviously still using the 8v tensioner for the top
