You have to cut out the inner cam cover to hide the side engine bolt.

I will also add a peice of metel along the top of the mount to the rear to add strengh (3rd pic) (mod the the backplate may need to be trimmed for peice of mind)

Water pump and Alternator problems solved.


Use ST170 Tensioner.

Use CVH Alternator.

Use 950-1150mm 6pk Belt.
