OK, I need a new belt on my early 8N with loader. I unbolted the hydraulic pump and slid it forward. The pump shaft slid out of the crank pulley revealing 4 pins that fit into holes in the crank pulley. There is only about an eighth of an inch clearance between the pins and the crank pulley. That's not enough room to slide the belt through. What am I missing?

Thanks
Steve

What loader do you have? It might be a slpine shaft or could be a left hand thread shaft at the hub. Can you see splines near hub? May have to take the hub off to get the belt on.

The hydraulic pump shaft threads are 5/8" X 18 left hand. Figure the odds, but a buddy of mine had a tap so he cleaned up the threads for me.

The fan belt number for a Ford 8N front mount distributor is Gates TR20451. Maybe someone who is important enough can post that number to the Ford N ***'s.

Have a nice day
