Does anyone know the length of the fan belt for a Fairbanks 208?

Thanks Mr. Reed
I got it running and by golly it runs good.
This is the first time it has run in a very long time. Another junk yard save.
It has a crack on the bottom of the water jacket and drips a drop of water about every 3 minutes. I can live with that.

Alan, was that your Ajax at Temple? When I walked by and spoke I was headed to a task and didn't have time to visit. Later I came by and looked at the oil field engines and didn't see you. That Ajax was setting there purring like a kitten.

Dwayne that Ajax used to be mine. I sold it a couple of years ago. That is one of the best running engines I have ever had.
My trailer had a 208 Fairbanks on it.
I really enjoyed the Temple show this year.
I have a 7 1/4 x 8 Ajax that is on the other end of the spectrum, when it comes to starting. Hardest engine that I have ever had to start.
