Default Serpentine Belt in 240

Ok just got done with a little project ive been working on for the past couple of weeks. i wanted to run a newer style AC pump and alternator and i had all the accessories from a 95 850 so after a few trial and error came up with this set up.




first i had to machine the front pulley from the 850



Then find a water pump pulley that would work

Make a bracket and some spacers




and the finished product




Hope the photos work first time posting photos

one of the mechanics at work did this too on his 242GT. I'll have to try and get a picture of it, it's really cool looking...

Parts list is pretty simple. The crank pulley, alternator, power steering pump, ac pump, tensioner, and bracket is off a 95 850. Crank pulley had to be machined in the center and 6 new bolt holes drilled. the water pump is off a 4 cylinder ford mustang mid 90's 5.0 style, and the bracket and spacers i made. The fitting on the power steering pump is a 16mmx1.5 o-ring to -6am (Russell part number 648060 from summit) and at the rack is a 14mm to -6an banjo fitting also from summit.

Is there enough surface area on the crank pulley?

Wonder if you could use a b234 bracket, since that already puts all the accessories on one side

Do you have enough wrap on the crank?

That would be my concern. The overall mod is awesome, but the belt should be routed so that it travels over a greater area on the crank pulley. Shouldn't be too difficult to realign the belt pulled up between the crank & the AC instead of around the outside. Not really any room to do that on the WP side of things.

I made a modified setup to adapt the '99- tensioner setup to my '98, and came up with two versions, the first is simpler, since in my case it does away with the idler used thru '98 - but requires a dual-ribbed belt instead of the single sided used -98







Maybe if you use the '99 tensioner which sits much lower, you can re-route a longer belt,since you need to provide for the WP over on the left.

So alternators work whichever way you turn them then? Looks cool.

nice mod, looks good. I share the concerns about the belt wrap on the crank though, esp at hi rpm the belt could loose tension and slip.

yeah. Only the fan in the casing can be spinning the wrong direction, the whiteblock alternator that I have has an arrow on it so it has a preferred direction for the fan.

Mine is spinning the wrong way - don't know if that means it's pulling air in or out, but it works fine - since my motor sits sideways, the alt is facing forward - plenty of air flow over the casing. Capt Bondo said he ran one of these alternators backwards for some time with no charging issues.

yeah i am sure the reverse direction doesn't give any problems. In the Bosch yellow manual on alternators they even state that the alternators with internal fan can spin both directions without changing the fan (as opposed to the classic alts with external fan found on 240/740).

Strange that Volvo put an arrow on the '99 S80 alt that I have though, probably has something to do with the one way clutch fitted to newer models, now that i think about it.
