ive got a 1.2 8v corsa and have an x16xe engine to go into it, the donor car had PAS therefore the mount had the PAS pump mounted on it, the mount was broken in an accident hence why the engine was being sold as car was a write off. so im usin the existin mounts on my 1.2. problem is then im strugglin to find a drive belt to fit , which one shud i be using? one way round it is to use a crank pulley from a nova and an alternator from a nova so i cud use a 'v' belt but just wonderin if neones got any ideas
do u mean uve changed the pulleys and usin a different belt or kept the original pulleys and just made an adjuster for the alternator, cus there's no tensioner nemore there needs to be some way of adjustin it. ive got a belt from a 1.4 16v with no pas which almost fits but just too big so this one shud work with some way of adjustin the tension on it. how have u made ur bracket for the alternator? can u get any pics of it?
