    Is there a low point on the clutch that now you can you turn it, it will allow the belt to sqeeze past?
    The clutch come down if the centre bolts is removed but after all this time, it may prove challenging or if luck is with you it could drop with a little effort.
    Removing the engine bolts and prying it over should give room as would bending the bar but the choice is yours as to which is the easiest
    Edit: I think you can forget forget the bit about the clutch low point, Im talking bo!!0cks:)

    Ok, result - managed to bend bar out of the way and get belt past it. Have now fitted belt but it seems quite loose which doesn’t seem right. Wondering whether it’s the wrong belt as was given part number for a Countax 600H and I guess H1842 may not be exactly the same. Should it be loose? Where can I get the H1842 part number from to compare?

    A loose transmission belt just isn't what you need.....do you think you have it routed correctly?
    Certainly there should be some sort of tensioner, usually spring loaded. If the tensioner has a flat revolving face it bears on the outside of the belt - if it has a vee then it runs on the inner face of the belt.

    Just check the parking brake is not locked down as operating it slackens the belt.

    Hi, all looks ok now although belt still seems loose. Got to work on wiring next before I try and get it up and running - as when belt went it ripped all the clutch wiring out! Have struggled to find part number of Hayter H1842 belt. Any advice on where I might find it? The belt I got was 229503400 which I believe is a Countax 600H part number.
