PHT3 belt tension?
whats the best way to check and adjust tension on the belts of a pht3?

i pulled the turbine and secondary reduction out and its time to put back in but i cant find the manual, plus i dont even know if the specs are in there for something like this, i dont remember ever seeing them

the original style thin belts, not the new 1/2" wide ones..

Tension/Alignment
Jim, Start from the top down, clutch to baseplate
Hard,Finger pressure, the belts do not stretch, they wear out
You will need to pay a lot of attention to alignment, or else the belts will rub and cause a load of black sticky dust (rubber)
It can take an age to get right, but it will be time well spent
I used to do it, now I send them back to JetCat Germany, expensive, but peace of mind
