When fitting Gates stretch fit belts, it is advisable to follow these guidelines: 1. Several stretch fit tools are available -- to ensure you choose the correct one please refer to the belt sleeve which gives the number of the required tool. 2. Instructions are also included on the inside of the belt sleeve, showing where and how to fit the tool. 3. Fit the tool as shown in the installation diagram on the belt sleeve, with the tool placed on the crank pulley and the bolt inserted until it touches the crank pulley. 4. Fit the belt over the pulleys in the drive as shown. 5. Using your thumb, hold the tool against the pulley while using fingers to hold the belt in the pulley grooves and against the outer edge of the tool. 6. Rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation with the tool in place to leverage the belt completely onto the pulley and into the grooves. 7. Check that the belt sits well in all of the pulley grooves. If not, rotate the crank pulley, while adjusting the belt in the grooves.
