Hello all,
I posted this awhile back and got a welcome from Mr. Royse (meant to reply and say thank you, I do not post much, read most everyday and started coming here about 1997 or so).

I have an alternator kit on my 4000 that I installed 15 years ago or so and I am in the process of splitting the tractor, fixing seals, new paint and all the odds and ends that seem to stack up over the years. I never felt real good about my alternator install. The belt pulley is not perfectly aligned with the fan pulley and crank, so I want to square that away. Wanted to see if any one was willing to take a pic or three of their install and see if I can see a better way.

Thank you all,
Geortge

I wonder if brackets from a 4600 would help?

Glad to see you're still with us on the forum!

I still don't have a 3 cylinder 4000 though.

Looks like UD has some good pictures of his setup. :)

Thank you for posting. It is better than nothing and looks solid. Hard to tell in the picture, do you have a good alignmnet with the other pulleys? Any bolts I try are a bit sloppy in the hole and I need to find a bushing to take up the space. The bracket I have come in the kit with the tach attachment.

Yes, thanks for the reminder, 73' 4000 diesel, 3cyl of course.

Thanks again,

George

Yes the alignment is pretty good.
When I built this bracket I bolted the long part of the bracket onto the engine. Then I bolted the two ears to the alternator. Then I took a short piece of 1x3 board and clamped it to the hood. And used a big clamp to clamp the alternator to the board. Got it aligned just so and tacked the ears in place.
Then I took it all apart and full welded it prime and paint. Took me all one afternoon monkeying around but it came out good. I used a piece of rope between the pullys to estimate the length of the belt but it still took a couple of trips to the hardware store to get the right belt.
I wanted the alternator to tuck under the hood as close as I could.

For others who aren't following your posts you should always mention this is a 3 cyl 4000. I looked through my photos and this is the only one I have.
Doesn't help much I suppose.
I made the bracket.

I used a Tisco bracket years ago to convert one of my 4000's to an alternator, I'll try to take a pic of it and post in a few days

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
