Finally took the Prince out today after a four week layoff. After loosing electric generating capabilities on the way home in the early hours of the morning, it was time to sort out the belt drive for my 2CV alternater. i've lost count of the number of "v" belts i've gone through since i fitted it. After a call to HPC gears in Chesterfield, givng them the distance between the driver & driven shafts and the ratio required we came up with a pair of matched toothed sprockets and a very slim toothed belt. Thanks to JH in Bury for the bit of machining he did to one of the sprockets. The test is see how long these belts last. Did 50 miles this evening with all the candles glowing and showing a well balance ammeter. Watch this space.
