Hey Guys, I recently bought a used OB4, and I noticed that the belt to the rear of the car is real loose, and when I spin the wheels real fast I can hear the rear belt skipping. Do they make a rear belt tensioner for that belt, or is my belt just to old and time to but a new one. Its the small belt behind the motor.

hello

Um there is no rear belt tension as you dont need did you get the instructions with it??

what ya actually do is. the diff is seated in 2 plastic side peices that go throught the uprig=hts that are bolted to the chassie.

you need to undo the whole rear end and then you can like turn the diff to the rear and you increase the tension on the belt

its a built in tensioner. no need for the upgrade cost (well there is no other option.

stink thing is that the whole rear needs to be pulled apart

Default front one way and what type of rear diff?

Anybody out there running the front one-way. And if so what type of rear diff are you running for a big track like Crystal Park or Revalations in SoCal.
Thanks,

Hey guys, there is an older Ob4 thread here, but glad to see you guys step up to the better forum ! ! !
If you are at Crystal Park look up Steve from Ofna. Sometimes he's there with his Ob4, Glitch has run into him.
Crazy is right about the f/1way and ball diff. I prefer the oil in the rear diff, less maint. If you can run 20 sconds or less, you can run a 15-19 with a 1+ Horsepower motor @ Crystal Park, set your shift late so only on the straight do you see 2nd gear.
Ryan, you dont have to take the whole rear apart. Upper deck screws, shock tower, dampener, and one diff block. Make sure the adjustment rings are set in the same notch, left & right. Dont tighten the belt a lot, just so it doesnt slip. The belts are kevlar and you dont want to stretch them, then they are going to get looser till they break.

Does anybody know what the part # is for the the belt setup, so that the belt is routed on the left side of the car istead of the right side buy the spur gears is. Also, anybody know anyone who has this kit in stock.
