"New vs. Old"

Is there a way for you to get a block or two pieces of equal height and lay each on one of them so the mounting surface is at the same level and the offset can be seen?

I tried. I thought the bottom edge showed it pretty well. The new one has about a 3/32" flange where the old one has none.

I got everything installed. Man is it hot outside. Anyhow, since the new pulley is smaller than the old, I'm afraid the belt is not tight enough. (I can spin the water pump and alternator by hand under the belt.) I'm headed to the river to try it out, but I suspect I'll be getting a new belt soon.

As I suspected, the belt slipped. I swapped the original pulley back on so it wouldn't ruin the day. Slippage, gone. Noise, gone. Tracking issues, gone. The little bracket for the alternator works. I feel like I wasted $90 on a pulley and a belt that is too big.

If it lines up when it's in the position you show, you should be able to find a spacer to go behind the bracket so the bolt can be tightened without compressing the hose. You'll probably need a longer bolt but that won't be very expensive.

Where did you get the pulley? Did the bracket come with it?

FWIW in other pictures I've seen of the bracket installed it's pushing on the hose some too.

I figured it would a little bit. Thats why I put heat shrink tubing over it to keep the sharp edges of the hose. This is way off. I have a call into the dealership but any other input is welcomed.

Thanks

If I could get my hands on the stupid bracket I could give you some feedback on how it fits on my '00! Finally got a price from my dealer on the supplemental bracket but I still need a price on the regular bracket. Been working them for 2 weeks through email and phone calls. I can't believe that MasterCraft/Indmar doesn't make a parts fiche available for each engine/boat that they could just look at and say "Oh that's part # blah and it's $42.36".

BTW if anyone could give me a part number for the alternator/tensioner bracket for an '00 230 VRS with LTR I'd be their BFF. Mine has a part number cast into it but apparently that number isn't meaningful.
