1965-66 Seatbelt Retractor Installation

  1. Wind retractor clockwise 7-8 full turns. While winding, be careful to hold retractor firmly in hand.
  2. Turn belt over with opposite hand. Push belt under tabs. Position retractor in the middle of the outboard webbing. (Figures 1 & 2)
  3. Position retractor squarely with belt and crimp tabs securely against belt webbing. (Figure 3)
  4. Check for proper operation of retractor and make and adjustment required.

Installation Notes:

  • If it is necessary to rewind retractor, do not exceed 9 full turns.
  • Caution, do not install retractor to the buckle half of the belt.

Use of belt:

  • Seatbelt must be fully extended when in use. Pull belt so it is fully unwound from retractor, then connect belt and make adjustment at the buckle for proper fit.
