|Sparky2 said: (quoted from post at 14:37:43 11/10/12) Well thank you very much. I assume I need to dismantle the distributor from the front engine mount and measure that bolt pattern and the pump will fit inbetween..sound correct? I'll see what happens when I call them Monday|
I mis-understood when you said you "have the front plate" to mount a pump. I thought you meant a mounting plate to drive off the front of the crankshaft, not off the timing gear... this is what I have on my 240U, an added mounting in front of the grill.
To drive off the timeing gear, you will need a pump from a late SM or newer model, 400, 450, etc. I don't know if Northern has such a thing, I doubt it, but they might. Then you will need the gears off a newer model because what is on an M is not strong enough to stand up to the added load. Someone else can probably help you more here than i can as to part #s, etc.
I believe Wardner has belt driven off the crankshaft on some of his "concoccsions"... maybe he can post anothe rpictureof his set-ups. This post was edited by IH fan at 12:26:33 11/10/12.
