Just got a Hayward Belt drive from a friend who bought it new a few years back. It is still new, never even been installed. Got it so cheap (he sold his bike) or I probably would have bought something I am more familiar with.

My questions are:

Has anyone had issues with all of those "Pins" I'm used to slots that cannot get loose and maybe come out!

It has a 6-1/2 Bonded plates (1st plate in is a stuffer (only one side bonded). Is that what the English refer to as a 7 plate clutch? It has 4 plates with very thin material (radially thin, about like a late sporty) but then there is a full width material plate(like a standard Triumph)in the middle of the pack with another full plate(the stuffer). Is this normal for them. Looks like a hodge. I would think that the pressure plate would have to be of a larger diameter to load those thin disks properly, so I would think anyway!

Anyone with experience using it this way or is mine just incorrectly assembled? Any thoughts about needing a larger diameter P-Plate?

Even the front pulley with its bolt on belt retainer looks like a place to have an issue. It's pretty heavy too at least when compared to others I've seen.
Thanks all
Mark

I use one. No problems except the clutch bearing is not sealed and the clutch plates do not tolerate any oil on them.

Sounds like it is not a "wet" drive system as I was told when I bought it. I should have know it on my own. Hard to understand how a toothed belt which will trap oil under its teeth could work anyway. Gullible I guess!

Then, are the bonded plates supposed to be of varying widths? If so, where do the wide plates fit in the pack or is my pack incorrect? What was sent was 5 skinny plates with .4" of material surface width and 2 other bonded plates with .7" of surface width (one stuffer and one double bonded)

Happy Easter all

BBG,
The belt drive Tony Haywards I've seen are designed to be run wet as well as dry if you grease the roller bearing occasionally. No problem with trapping oil between the belt and pulley. A lot of people including a friend of mine, run them wet, as designed, no problems, Ford ATF if your engine & primary aren't sharing lube. The pins are half imbedded in chain wheel and threaded and loctited in at their base. Instead of changing out chain wheels when the slots wear out, you only have to change the drive pins..good idea I guess. Don't know about your stack up of plates, I beleive they are surflex, so of good quality, the kit I installed had a white paint dot on each plate that was to be installed adjacent to similar paint on one of the drive pins, most seem to agree a wider billet pressure plate is a good idea espicially if it has a bearing in center for pushrod to bear against...the heavy steel front pulley wears a lot better than the kits with alloy front pulley,(if you believe the ads) I don't see a problem there. As far as wet belt drive kits go, yours is a pretty good one I think, since being on this forum I now think I know enough to have other concerns with any belt drive, however, that's another post isn't it?
