Not sure the question.? With fan belt going around the pump drive shaft, the drive shaft has to be removed. The adjustment and loosening point for the fan belt is the alternator. Loosen alternator adjustment strap, to loosen the belt, flip the belt off the pulleys, remove the front drive shaft, which you say needs repair anyway, and pull out the shaft and belt.??

I will opt out, as I do not have the right books that show the 1400. Please do not respond to me , or it locks the question. Sorry.
