    Default 504 fan belt number?

    ok so i didn't relise this until now, but deep inside i know it was wrong from the start, i had this set up on my car when i bought it, it baffled me as to why somebody would try this, i had 2 belts going from the crankshaft, one for the alternator and one to the water pump (which this one couldn't be tensioned), WHAT!! it should of clicked when i had to cut it while dismantling the engine hahaha

    but any way now im putting everything back together i stupidly just bought new replacement belts to suit the the old belts, but after a bit of swearing i knew it was so wrong, and after saying to myself why wouldnt the french just use 1 belt! it clicked

    ill get to the point, does any body have the belt number i should be using to replace this set up, i now know there is 1 belt for the three and after going through all the archives and internet pages of untrustfull crap i thought id just ask the pro's who know a simple belt number so i can go down to the local and pick one up.

    any help would be much appreciated

    why don't you want to use the original setup ??

    the belt for the water pump is simple, easier than any other belt to put on and take off and the idea behind it is bloody brilliant

    'Rambo,
    I think Leftcoasts problem is that with the alternator 'underslung' his engine has two belts, one for alternator the other for air con compressor?
    His difficulty in sourcing belts is because it is not o.e. Can't blame Peugeot for this.

    My mistake, we are dealing with a TI engine.

    I do wish to Use the original set up I think, the belt in the picture is not ment to be there right? This is how it came but In a few pictures I have seen there is 1 belt spinning both the alternator and the water pump off the crank, the 2 belts seems silly as you cannot tension the water pump belt, am I crazy?

    Leftcoast EAI are having a run out on 504 TI water pump belt. Buy a few, around $4 ea. They are not able to be tensioned, but never need to be and don't wear out nor load up the water pump bearings.

    To size the other belt , get a sacrificial belt, longer than you need. Set the alternator on minimum adjustment the cut the belt until the ends touch. Join the ends with a piece wire through a hole in each end, like a leather belt staple.

    Then go to a shop with belt measuring tool and buy the next largest belt.

    Injection engines have two belts for a reason. If you use a single belt for alternator and WP and have an alternator under the engine, the belt rubs on the side of the water pump.

    EDIT: From memory the water pump belt runs on the inner sheave. The alternator runs on the outer.
    The alternator in the image is a different to factory fit. So it's possible the alignment is with the wrong sheave.

    Also check the alternator fan runs in correct direction, since the alternator is on the other side to normal carby engines.
