Mustang Belts 1964-2014

Belts

The engine bay of your Mustang contains many components, including the engine itself. These components are items like the alternator, water pump, etc. that are each necessary for your Mustang to function. Typically, each is powered by the engine, most often through a belt that connects it to the engine. These belts can break, so CJ Pony Parts offers many Mustang Belts to allow for easy, cheap repairs, getting your Mustang back on the road in no time.

Ford Mustang Belts

The Mustang belts in your Mustang of any model year are vital components to keeping your Mustang moving. However, over the many decades that the Mustang has been around, the way Mustang belts are implemented and used has changed dramatically, and has evolved in such a way that the maintenance of Mustang belts has gotten much easier over the years. Originally, the Mustang belts in many classic Mustangs, up to models that were made in the mid-1980s, consisted of many belts that attached to the engine and independently powered each secondary engine component separately. This results in many Mustang belts in the engine bay, usually one for the Mustang alternator, another to the Mustang water pump and yet another for the Mustang power steering pump. While this is helpful if one of the Mustang belts broke, since every system hasn't lost power and you may be able to keep driving, it isn't very efficient either, so many designers looked to find a better way.

This way arrived in the 1980s in the form of the serpentine belt. These Mustang belts were far more efficient, as the engine was redesigned to allow only one Mustang belt to power each of the components in the engine bay. This single belt conserves space in the engine bay, and also features increased belt life and mechanical efficiency, since the single belt can be placed under higher tension.

If you notice your Mustang belts are looking worn out, or if these Mustang belts have flat out failed in your Mustang, CJ Pony Parts offers dozens of new Mustang belts so you can get your Mustang back on the road. Order online, or give the CJ Pony Parts sales team a call now.
