I just realized the belt is on the wrong wide of the cooling hose. Thats just dumb.....
I had not yet finished all the final taping and also put a panel of the Sundown on the top, or under the cockpit floor. Beta told me NOT to enclose to engine in so it can "breath".
"1st mate" Captain, the belt just broke, and we are taking 15' breakers on the beam.
"captain" Quick, disassemble the cooling system and change it.
As opposed to: belts broke, ok, loosen the alternator, put a new one on.
BTW I think beta is assuming the engine is being installed in a modern cookie cutter boat. Enclose it, a 3" hole is all it needs to breathe.
I love beta/kubota engines, but this was a poorly thought out design.
