Figure 129. Installed the belt to make sure that everything is aligned and set the way it is supposed to be. The belt is a Dayco 5060930 Poly Rib belt. This is the belt for the 130 amp alternator. The belt for the 105 amp alternator is too short for this set up, as was found out the hard way. There were no identification markings on this alternator, so we guessed it at 105 amps at first, which was incorrect.

Figure 130 and 131. Installed the spark plugs, they are NGK TR51X Iridium spark plugs. They are installed finger tight, to prevent cross threading, then torqued to 13ft lbs. Compression feels good, very difficult to turn the motor over by hand now with the plugs in.

Figure 132. The wires are being bundled together to prepare for splicing and sleeving. This also helps me to figure out the best way to route them. I may delay the final splcing until after the steam line vent kit is installed, as it is going to run near some of the wire bundles. (We are going to use the Trick Flow Steam Vent braided hose kit)
