Original belt drive on front of MX5 engine

Original belt drive on front of MX5 engine

One issue that required sorting out on the engine was the removal of the power steering and air conditioning pumps and the subsequent rerouting of the ribbed drive belt.  This is the configuration of the original set up with the power steering pump on the top right corner and the airconditioning pump on the lower right corner.  The belt tensioning pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley was also replaced.
The following photos illustrate the changes and how they were achieved.
