    Default out of line pulley

    I have a problem that has got me stumped. how do you correct an out of line bottom pulley that was on line before I lifted the engine out but now back in, all levelled up and secure, the belt is trying to run off over the lip/edge, and It needís to be right, but how? New bearings maybe? would a belt tensioner help line the belt it up?

    The short answer is that level is not necessarily square, either up and down or side to side.



    To determine which is the problem, I's take the plugs out and wind the engine backwards. If the belt walks in the opposite direction, then the engine is out of line side to side.



    Otherwise, shim the engine on it's mounts til the belt runs true



    PS 101s are a bag of poo

    thanks for the advise on the pulleys, i will have a go this weekend.

    but the 101 being poo well the only thing i can say to that is With the exception of the Freelander, never has a Land Rover looked less like a Land Rover .granted but

    The 101 Forward Control may be the most able vehicle to have ushered forth from Lode Lane.

    No-one can deny that the 101 is ugly but therein lies its beauty. Its body is bereft of a single curve i know

    But what straight lines!

    plus it pulls like a train. you can have a drive up at peaches if you like?

    You sir clearly have no taste in vehicles whatsoever!



    The 101 is second only to the Alvis Stalwart in beauty! (As the Stalwart is amphibious there is a slight hovercraft relevance here).

    The alvis is a beauty, good choice.

    and another cool bit of British engineering. Maybe one day.
