Default Re: Sequence for tightening of fan belts 8BA

8BA generators are a big heavy lump. The mount cradle is hard to get under. I wish they were as easy as the early types although I've seen a busted generator mount on one of the aftermarket aluminum manifolds where a guy got a bit carried away with the amount of pressure he was applying to tighten the belt there. It was from an old 81A motor. It depends on how well the casting was designed for sure and some of the aluminum designs weren't all that good in that respect.
