Well I got the ratchet on the square hub. Put some pressure on it. Tighten it, knock your bearings out. Suck it back up to a new belt. Now we're applying pressure with a ratchet. So it’s a fairly good idea actually. It’s much better than having to wedge your bar in to, put some pressure into belt and then tight it up. Keep the pressure on it while you wind up the last bit. Then actually bring the pressure down. Now it flex quarter of an inch, top to bottom you want. No more than that. So that’s pretty much it, I'm just going to do the belts of the alternator. And then the bolts that you need to undo to change the alternator as well as the slide it back at the top. Couple of electrical connectors on the back and the oil filter from the brake servo. On both brake servo, change the box on the back of that a little while ago. That’s pretty much it for down below apart from one more cover bolt that we have to feed the covering from the top to get to that. So I’ll drop the car now and tension up the top belt.
