Abstract:

An eccentric adjustment and mounting system is useful for belt engaging engine components such as alternators or water pumps. The system includes a housing fixed to the engine, a socket rotatable in pawl-and-ratchet fashion within the housing, and a socket aperture eccentrically disposed relative to the sockets axis. The aperture receives the belt engaging component, whereby rotation of the socket moves the component to adjust belt tension.
