How to belt drive just about anything from any engine - DIY

This article describes how to belt drive just about any device like a welder, pump, second alternator, or whatever else you need to spin from the front of most any engine.

It covers a bush method of mounting a second drive pulley to the front of the engine and a couple more professional methods also.

The article also has a simple methods of finding bolt hole centers (where to drill the mounting holes) from tight locations without measuring. Much of the information comes after building over a 100 PTO mounts mostly in the field.


The link is-
Second marine alternator



Hope the article is of use.

If you have a Volvo-Penta, they have a dedicated Kit.
I had one in my boat. One of the best pieces of equipment. It reduces to half the time you need to run your engine for having the basic energy for cruising and living aboard, out of the marinas.
