  • How do I put on the AC belt for my 79' 245?

    So on my newly acquired brick the AC compressor doesn't have a tensioner but instead has the spacers style tension system. There is a surplus of information on getting the weird AC tensioning system pulled out and adjusted with the spacers, but not a lot of information covering getting it back on. The only resource I found was from 240 revival on YouTube where he gets it about 3/4 of the way up the pulley then turns it with a 22mm the rest of the way. Ive put all the spacers behind the pulley and still cant even walk the belt halfway past the pulley. I already ruined two belts trying LOL. What am I doing wrong? Is there a different way?
