Now that I see ya used counter sink screws to mount the adapter plate.
I got an easier Idea of how to mount that belt guard with pan head screws
Put spacers in between the adapter plate and engine to achieve the correct clearance for the belt guard
Then just screw the belt guard to the adapter plate with short pan head screws.
Looks like the 4 pan head screws won't interfere with the belt
If needed, nuts could be epoxied on the backside of the adapter plate for the 4 pan head screws.

My mind is already thinking of another way to skin that Kat, but I think I've given enough suggestions already :ROFLMAO:

While this thread is on the subject of Belt Guards

Here's a trick to keep the New Generation Whizzer Plastic Belt Guard for cracking


Tip: when using a screw drive, hold the tip between your fingers so incase it slips off the screw head it won't scratch the chrome
As you can see in the pic of the old cracked belt guard the chrome got all scratched up before I discovered this easy trick. :LOL:

I would also think you could use threaded inserts for the pan head screws instead of epoxied nuts. It looks like the aluminum plate is thick enough. I use them in woodworking projects all the time There are many types.. most just "screw" into an oversize hole.


Or "rivet nuts". Just my two cents.
