first push belt down to open sheaves then to tighten turn face plate counterclockwise you want the belt to ride up about a 1/8 inch up on the secondary

Hold a ruler or straight-edge across the top of the belt. Now push down on the belt half way between the clutches. The distance between the ruler and the belt should be 1-1/4".
