Adjust

TOC

Consult the vehicle manufacture for non-Cummins fan hub installations.

Do not adjust belt tension to full value with the adjusting screw. Belt tension can increase when the locknut is tightened and cause reduced belt and bearing life.

Loosen the idler pulley shaft locknut.

Use belt tension gauge, Part Number ST-1293, or equivalent, to adjust the belt to the correct tension. Refer to Procedure 018-005 (Drive Belt Tension) in Section V for correct belt tension.
