Shovel specific belt drive
BELT Drives Limited has a new primary belt drive option specifically for use on Shovelhead applications. The BDL SHS-600 is a complete electric start drive kit for ‘70-‘78 machines with ratchet top transmissions only.
The conversion requires the use of a ‘89-‘06 style starter motor, which eliminates the old technology starter solenoid. Once in place the kit is said to remove the need for the solenoid battery cable, which means no more slow starter cranking or weak starter kick-backs.
Included in the kit is a billet rear plate that covers the trans drive while providing support for the clutch basket assembly. The rear plate/support is made up of the plate, BDL’s mini starter housing, pinion gear and starter ring gear guard. Front and rear pulleys are supplied as is BDL’s Kevlar clutch and a 2in, 140-tooth belt.
