First time setting one up on my BBF. I am seeing hints of where people are using a chromatic tuner to capture the frequency to tune the belt tension. for example, I tested one setting and it showed as a G3 note, which equated to 186Hz. I feel this may be a little tight, but looking for answers from those with experience!

Thanks,
Tony.

Straight edge on drivers side of the belt .......................... MOVING IDLER UP TOWARD CAM GEAR,NOT DOWN
To do this you will be pulling downward on wrench


WITH ALUM BLOCK BELT SHOULD MOVE .080 TO .120 THOU

WITH IRON BLOCK .050 TO .080


THEN TORQUE NUT TO 60 TO 65 FOOT LBS WITH BLUE LOC TIGHT

LITTLE NUTS ON CAM GEAR TO 18 TO 22 FT LBS WITH BLUE L/TIGHT

Belt will tighten up when warm
