I have the above motor,
I need to change the alternator belt,it has a coil spring as a permanent adjuster under the alternator.
I have never changed one with this method of adjuster before.
Anybody know how to release the tension in order to change the belt?
It has a separate "V" belt for the steering pump,I can't see any adjustment or adjustment idlers on it,is it self adjusting?

Any advice will be gratefully received
