Hello, I installed electrical fans lately. now it is the time to change the alternator belt. can I directly put a belt from the crank pulley to the alternator just like the power steering belt?
What type of engine do you have and what was the alternator belt originally connected to (crank pulley + alternator pulley + ???)?
If the alternator belt was also connected to the fan pulley... the fan pulley may also be turning the mechanical water pump. If this is the case, you would need to leave the alternator belt connected to the fan/water pump pulley.
