    Default DS23 Pallas Fan Belts

    Having trouble sourcing belts (10A) for hydraulic pump and fan/alternator. Any recommendations locally? We live on the NSW south coast and need ASAP. Perhaps someone knows size/number so we can also look overseas as a last result.

    10A appears to be a tricky size, I'm using 11A without problems.

    11A0965 on the alternator side and 11A0800 on the pump side.



    EDIT: Getting a matched pair is more an issue, when sourcing be fussy about the belts you select. 11A is a common size you will find at the usual automotive outlets.

    Cheers

    Agreed !! It is most important that you buy a MATCHED PAIR .. specify it at time of purchase. There can be considerable difference between supposedly identical ( ie same number ) belts. Even with a matched pair if you fit with the reference panels side by side, they won't stay side by side for long.

    hahaha, so true, I'd guess maybe 100 revolutions, but it was nice to see them lined up at least once.

    For those a little upset at the hose clamp on the pump - it was temporary and has been replaced with Mirex and a rubber sleeve

    Thats good Chris - I was getting concerned.... and while your at it fit the correct spacer on the water pump end of the adjusting rod to square it up against the pump.

    I sincerely hope you have the correct square washer, washer, serrated washer and 11mm nut in place as well at the pump end.

    LOL (with tounge firmly in cheek)....

    Cheers,

    Mark...

    Whew! Chris, you had me worried there for a sec. I thought you were, umm, slipping.

    Might have to raid your parts bin. . .
    I've got the square spacer for the alternator side but had to improvise for the pump side
