Thread: Alternator Belt Part #

  1. #21
    I actually found a comparable belt of the same width (critical) at the aviation department of a farm supply warehouse in Southern Illinois. Used for a thrasher, I think. But, I never found the right length (37.5"?). Too bad, they were in the $15 range. I could have had two or three spares for that price.

    Dave G, here are some shots I took of my spare belt on the Super III. I do not have the shroud over the top of the crank housing, and there is enough slack in the spare to easily put my fingers between the belt and the block.

    I like the idea of having a spare belt: makes great sense. BUT... our aircraft are already so nose heavy that we put ballast in the tail: shouldn't we be storing that (albeit small) weight in the cargo area?

    The issue isn't just to have a spare belt available. It's a good idea to have it available and prepositioned in the event of a belt failure during or between flights while away from an A&P, since the prop must be removed to replace a broken belt!

    The lower powered Mice just had a crummy CG certification. The Sport and Sundowner will fly just like a Super III anywhere within the Supers CG envelop. Like most airplanes, they fly better with the CG toward the aft limit. But, the Musketeer Series isn't nose heavy.

    Thanks CB - that looks like a good idea. The next time my prop is off I'm going to do that.
