Re: Gilmer wank

Keep a spare belt in your boot. Aparrently you can get them now for power steering but its just a normal V belt. For the ultimate in pulley set ups, have a look here:

I have used gilmer belt drive, found if car broke traction & free revved all teeth would be ripped of belt. I now have MARCH serpertine belt system. No problems.

Re: Gilmer wank

interesting to hear about the gilmer drive shearing teeth of belt on loss of traction. Have had an xc and a xb (both clevlands with power steering) which have lost power assistance when things get a bit hairy in low speed fishtails. I always put this down to the fact that the adrenalin was pumping and I was just turning the wheel faster than the pump or box could cope with, now I'm wondering whether belt slip was the issue.

BAGTHO have you had this prob previous to installing your serpentine belt, and did it fix the prob?

Re: Gilmer wank

Your belts are probably worn or not properly adjusted. I have had mine up to 6000 rpm on the dyno with power steer and air con, normal V belts (all 3) and no slipping. Your driving is an issue.

What sort of power does yours put out. I have my p/steer and fan on the same belt, and there is no way i can stop from squealing. It is only down low, where the accleration is the greatest. It only takes 2 seconds from stand still to 7000rpm in 1st gear though.

Mine only puts out 267HP at the wheels. Thats with auto, 3.0:1 diff, air, steer, and belt driven fan.

Re: Gilmer **censored**

re xdclevo can't tell you what horsepower as I never had it dynoed (not goin to happen soon as I'm playing the strip the paint back and find the rust and dodgy repairs game at the moment), nothing to special just a well built bottom end cant remember what spec cam I have in it but pretty large, fairly heavily ported 2vs, redline performer, 750vs, msd ign and good exhaust. I got rid of the belt driven fan in favour of thermos as it kept overheating in traffic.

Couldn't notice any belt squeal from mine but as you've read I may have slippage probs, good chance I wouldn't hear it anyway had exh tested at 105db at idle.

re xcgxl

Not a belt tension or condition issue, has happened when belts are new and when belts are old possibly a power steering pump or box issue but strange for two different cars in a row to do the same. (same engine in both but different p/s systems).

as for my driving being an issue thats your opinion.

Re: Gilmer wank

I bought one today for my new clevo that I am about to get done at FMP.
Picked it up for 295 from Star and thats the power steering version. The only bad thing I have ever really heard of is from overtightening.....but I am biased after having a 6/71 car that sounded horn so I only bought it to bring back memories.

Once I installed the MARCH serpentine sytem. All indication of belt slipping was eliminated.

The belt system only drives high flow water pump & alternator. Shift gears at 7500 rpm.
