Should be easy enough to make for a machine shop.

You can use any kind of crow bar you can fit between the compressor and the compressor mount To give you --the leverage you will need there
After loosening the compressor mounting bolts ( do keep them snug but not tight so the compressor can move when pressure is applied )
Pull on the crow bar to move the compressor to tighten the fan belt
When you have a 1/2 inch play in the fan belt at its longest span the belt is adjusted correctly
Tighten all down
Task done correctly --without needing the special tool
Just the crow bar in the corner of the tool box -LOL

Enjoy

Disregard the breaker bar post
I deleted that post after looking at the tool again but it still is showing on the dashboard home page anyway
There is an additional flat metal part to the tool that i did not see at first
My earlier suggestion should get the belt adjusted correctly and that looks like the goal here

Enjoy

WTB power steering pump pulley

My power steering belt pulley sheered the woodruff key off the pump shaft and is pretty wrecked. Does anybody have a pulley for sale? Or the whole pump and pulley together?

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done.
