conversion kit fan belt

Post by oldishwinger »



Hi Folks my 86 aspy has the conversion kit in, not that long put in, anyway the belt has developed a crack, and needs replacing.

I havnt taken the lower cover off as yet, but is it possible to change the belt without moving the radiator?

many thanks.

It's possible...but it will take twice as long, be twice as difficult, and cause twice as many skinned knuckles.
