Either way keep thinking up ideas and get other projects on the jeep done, cant wait to see more progress!
Have you seen the jeep tj 4.0 they use an tensioner ... that has a spring that keeps the right pressure on the belt at all times... I wonder if I can use that.
I really like the way you think!
Its called an automatic tensioner pulley or something like that.
oh and the ac.. I think my heater core is bad and my ac and heat stopped working.. but I'm doorless all the time and I NEVER use it, and I thought it would be good for the alt to get it up high to keep it out of water and stuff.
Heres a pic of the alt up high and the auto tension pulley
