Belt idler mounting bolts
Posted by: joewryan ()

I recall seeing a post from someone somewhere that showed a mod for the adjustment bolts for the belt idler. The bolts make the adjustment of the idler easier with common tools.

Does anyone know who has these bolts?

Most (myself included) just use longer coupling nuts on the adjuster stud, and some have even replaced the pivot bolt with a stud to use a coupling nuts there as well.

Isn't it fine thread and coupling nuts were hard to find. Seems I remember someone in our club bought a bunch of them and was se3lling them to members.

Talk to Caveman Pete. His friend has the hyper extender nuts for the adjustment point. Got to have a stud there with right threads.

Just contact Russ Davis (Blue Chip Tools). His kit will give you everything you need.

Enjoy the Corvair!

I put those coupling nuts up there for the cheap owners, who don't want the quality kit Russ has.
