hub, coupling and drive plate (Fig. 3) or a spacer, drive plate, drive coupling and hub (Fig. 4).
The drive plate and spacer, when used, are bolted to the camshaft or balance shaft gear. The accessory is
bolted to the flywheel housing and driven by a drive hub keyed to the accessory shaft and splined to the
coupling which is splined to the drive plate attached to the camshaft or balance shaft gear. The current drive
coupling, shown in Fig. 4, has 21 external teeth; the former coupling had 23 external teeth.
Belt driven accessories, such as battery-charging generators or air compressors, are driven off the camshaft or
balance shaft gears by a drive hub and pulley (Fig. 5), or a spacer, accessory drive plate, accessory drive
shaft, accessory drive retainer assembly and pulley (Fig. 6).
In the first arrangement, illustrated in Fig. 5, the drive hub is bolted to the camshaft or balance shaft gear. The
oil seal retainer is bolted to the flywheel housing and the pulley is keyed to the drive hub shaft which extends
through the oil seal retainer.
In the second arrangement, shown in Fig. 6, the spacer and accessory drive plate are bolted to the camshaft or
balance shaft gear. The accessory drive shaft is splined to the drive plate at one end and supported by a
bearing in the accessory drive retainer at the other end. The accessory drive retainer, which also incorporates
an oil seal, is bolted to the flywheel housing. The pulley is keyed to the drive shaft which extends through the
drive retainer assembly.
