Default Thank You

Thank you very much Mike !
Can you tell me if that is a BB idler set up, or made by CAT? I am a machinist by trade and can fabricate one, but if there is a ready made part that is affordable....
A little background, This Bird has been sitting for about 10 years, and purchased very reasonable. She was parked with a full tank of fuel, and fired up within one revolution. We replaced the alternator and all the belts today and put about 50 miles on her. We have a few plumbing issues in the kitchen area, other than that she has been a pleasant surprise for as long as she has been sitting.
Thanks again for the reply !

Pulley/bearing is a Napa item, you'll be fabbing up the rest.

Does anyone have the belt size for the A/C comp on an 83 FC.

Default A/C Belt size

On my 1980 FC with a 250 Turbo I run a Gates Green Back 9690HD. The Cat number for the belt is 55-5052DF00

Default FC AC resurrection

Steve, let us know how that project goes. I replaced the dryer and pulled a vacuum on my system and it held for 72 hours. I then recharged the system and it cooled until we arrived in Las Vegas, by then it lost all the refrigerant. A refrigeration expert told me this is not unusual it sometimes can hold a vacuum but not pressure so the next step is to pressurize the system with nitrogen and find the leaks. I am hoping the hoses do not have to be replaced.

I am replacing all rubber hoses as well as pressure testing,changing drier and expansion valve. Should be good after that.

I have been thru this before and the reason I am changing hoses is that they most likely are leaking at the age they are.

Finally getting around to replacing the steering pump belts that I cut on ladt trip. I loosened the adjustment bolts on fan, it's not sliding down. I don't want to beat on the Horton, am I doing something wrong?
