Belt installation

Assembly instructions regarding the belts have me confused.

Is there a tension screw on each end, of each belt? Or is one side the tension screw, and the other end the belt clip is just held in by the pre-assembly nut?

The directions say:

“Tensioning screws (M5x25mm button head cap screw) are used at the end of each length of belt to help keep your belts tight.”

If this is the case, I’m short 3 M5x25 button head screws.

I wasn’t able to find anything on the subject via search… possibly because I’m the only dumba$$ who doesn’t understand. :joy:

Thanks in advance.

This is the droid you are looking for. It’s up to you which side the tensioner goes on.


Thanks. I figured but the wording had me confused.

No problem. Take your time getting the tension even on both sides. Best method I have found is using a fish scale in the middle of the belt. Pull it up an inch and adjust so they are even. 3.5 lbs if I remember correctly. Make sure to run the axis all the way to the opposite end of the tensioners.
