Hi, new V owner as of a few weeks ago. I bought a Hennessey HPE 650, 2012 V.
Late last week the lower idler pulley shredded the Supercharger belt. I haven’t been able to source one out for pick up, so I have 2 separately ordered waiting for the new one. I’m curious on the relocation bracket set up. I didn’t get the Hennessey receipts from the previous owner, nor does Hennessey have records from 2012. I know for a fact they changed up the pulleys but to what? I’m not sure.
All I know is the belt on there now (just replaced with the heavy duty version) is the Gates K080685 HD, and the lower idler pulley is the 50mm (apparently Metro from the research I’ve done on here) and that’s what I’ve reordered and spent hours looking through this past weekend. I’m curious though if the LPE (I believe) relocation bracket allows me to use the stock (more readily available) lower idler pulley, and not have to bother with anything else, or tune it. I’m still new to the performance side of cars as this is my first nice car.
So my questions are, if I buy the relocation bracket and a stock 70mm idler pulley, will I need to do anything extra? The second question is to ask if there’s an easy way to find the measurements of the pulleys I have currently so I can know and understand what my current setup is. I have tools readily available to me but I’m not sure which tools I might need if they’re special.
Sorry if I sound stupid, but I haven’t really had time to look into all this as I’ve been away from home all weekend and then work needs me today and the rest of the week instead of the usually 4x10 hrs.
Any help or advice is super appreciated. I’m at work now so I’ll try to check in on this thread later when I get the chance. Again, thanks all!
