Regardless of wrap, if you have a spring tensioner in line with a load after it, when the load increases (more amp w rpm draw if alt, use the pump, etc) the tension on the belt increases. If there is a spring tensioner BEFORE the load (pump/alt) it will yield and the belt will loosen. I agree lots of wrap is important as well. Put a fixed idler or tensioner there. If you can't move the spring one down right off the crank (passenger lower side where the belt is exiting the crank and headed uphill, this is where slack is) just put a fixed with slide on it. When I made my accessory kit I used a fixed idler style and a slot in a plate with a nut holder rail on the backside and tensioned normally like an old V belt.Rockwells607 said:Yes I do have belt slip on that pump, I just added that pump when I did the rear steer and I need to address it sometime, needs more contact so probably another idler or something . Ive been really busy so it's pretty much just been basic needed maintance on the buggy Lately but sometime when I get a slowdown in the shop I plan to fix it. It's certainly wheelable now but the squeal alone drives me nuts

pretty close to the same as pinion brake rockwell...Just out of curiousity...what the weight of a stock '05 super duty 60 with factory brakes....

I've bench raced building a set of rockwell-super duty hybrids. Rockwell center + super duty outers. mainly because I can get a pair of Rockwell rears for free. Shafts would be sort of a cluster, according to if you wanted full zoot direct spline big stubs, or wanted to keep your locking hubs.
I suspect one could run 16 spline inners and get some stubs made either way, to run rockwell ujoints, or big bell RCVs.
patoyee had drawn up some wheel spacer drive flange things that allowed the use of a standard long rockwell stub shaft in a Super Duty outer setup. I don't know that they would worth it to make them though, considering custom stubs aren't *that* expensive or uncommon.I have been thinking about this also. If you are planning to go RCVs or other shafts, then it likely isnt a big deal. Ive also thought about an adapter allowing you to put 05+ hubs on rockwell knuckles, to run rockwell stubs. Seems possible, not sure it is worth it.
