Almost home this evening when our faithful Fourtrak threw its fanbelt. I'm kicking myself because I had become aware of a new, rythmic, engine speed related noise and intended to check over Xmas as to the cause. I guess it was the belt starting to break up!
Two questions, if I may.
1. We live in Spain and Fourtaks are a rare breed here and autoparts dealers rarely recognise them. Does anyone know how I can establish a code or size for the correct replacement belt?
2. As I was only a very short distance from home I nursed it back keeping a very close eye on the temp. gauge! The brake servo was not working. I'm no great shakes as a mechanic, but why would losing the fanbelt effect the brake servo?
As it's the festive season, a Happy Christmas to all involved in this site, and my thanks for all the contributions from those of you happy to share your knowledge.
