Looking for a shorter water pump belt to allow pump to be closer to axle and not foul on seat (tall guy with seat far back). Using the braided style now with hook. Any ideas?
I’ve often twisted them additional times to shorten them up. 20-30 twists should do the trick.
Mount the water pump to the left bearing carrier, hanging the pulleys out over the outboard part of the axle, and drive it with O-rings.
I use this stuff, you just make it whatever size you need, and you don’t need to take the wheel off to replace them. If you’re worried about the joint strength don’t be, I ran a full season on one pair of belts inc weekly practice 100 laps without any issues.
Any pics of this setup?
cut to length. Ill never go back
