Alternator and PAS Belts

Postby algirdas » Wed 15.08.2007, 06:50

Dear All:

New belt technology from Dayco:

PAS/AC belt-Dayco p/n 5060410 6PK1040

Alternator belt-Dayco p/n 5040275 4PK0700

$30USD for the pair.

These belts are the "new" Poly Cog technology. Allegedly longer life under adverse conditions and minimum chance of breaking. I'm willing to try anything that helps me avoid having to change belts on an M100.

Sincerely,

Algirdas

Thanks, Algirdas! I'm approaching extreme paranoia about driving Smaug at the moment. Houdini could not confirm the timing belt had ever been changed. 17 years and 47K miles has me very nervous. I'll do these at the same time.

Dearest Matt:

I got mine from Advance Auto parts. $30 or $33 with tax for both. Had them in stock, no waiting. They have cheaper ones as well, but I opted for the more expensive ones.

Sincerely,

A piece of information; the 4PK685 belt is also used on the Daihatsu Copen!

Probably marks me down as being sad...

Hi,

Rock Auto

http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php

Put 4pk690 or 6pk948 and Gates into the part number search.

Mr Auto

http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/drive-b ... PK690.html

http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/drive-b ... PK948.html

Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GATES-6PK948-Mi ... B005GXLUQO

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GAT-4PK690-Micr ... tes+4PK690

If you don't already have one, it is well worth investing in a 12mm ratchet ring spanner, it makes the job a little easier.

I have this set, while not a fan of Halfrauds it has proved itself many times.

You will also need one of these:

06 Alfa Romeo Brera


If you can't be a good example, then you might as well be a terrible warning

:agree: with Cliff

The Halfrauds ratchet set is excellent value for money and makes lots of jobs so much easier

I already have the set, i have one of there socket/spanner sets to and I'm very happy with both. Quality tools, but plenty of tools working there.

Cheers for the info Cliff! Belts are on their way to me from the other side of the pond.

I have to say I'm not looking forward to the change, does not look like the roomiest of jobs. Think I will need to find a guide!
