I need some help. How do I adjust the belt deflection on my Snopro 500. I removed the belt and noticed it was below the lip on the secondary when I removed it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

To adjust deflection, loosen up the 7/16" nut that snugs the 1/8" allen screw on secondary, thread the allen either in or out depending on what you seek....... ie; to loosen deflection, turn allen inwards as this will push rear sheave further from outer allowing belt to drop inwards more

to snug deflection, turn allen outwards as this allows secondary spring to push sheaves closer together, thereby raising belts height in secondary

IMPORTANT NOTE: when snugging 7/16" jam nut following adjustment, do so carefully as too much torque applied will snap allen screw like a strand of un-cooked spaghetti after has just being pulled from an overnight stay in sub zero temps,,, BTDT :shoot-me:

Make sure you rotate belt in sheaves to allow it to climb to its highest point before making final adjustment,, 1-1/8" deflection is ideal for these
