MH NOTE: Continued from [PART THREE]
I sure had to -I was @.020and the sled would creep with the lighting weights in
Didn't matter if it was a poo belt or the gates"C"
But now at .030 the is the better and can adjust the deflection- before didn't matter the primary was always on the belt
FYI: The 150/290 doesn't work as well as the 140/300 here in the nose bleed section of 9500'and up.
Lost some RPM and changed the secondary 200 to the 220 -not as strong as the past setup
Sled seems to like the 300 primary with the 200 in the secondary.
Been a fun year with the aid of Tony and Tory-
The higher elevation was getting tough to get it just perfect
I am running 2.6 -163 with a TKI system . The main difference I had was, I am running the 8's drivers off the 14/15 pro - so a bit more involved - but well worth the effort.
Interesting...so with proper deflection, you were getting sled creep with 0.020" belt to sheave clearance? Even with proper deflection? You had to add 0.010" shim? Wow. Were you at 0.020" prior to changing weights?
So I noticed with lightening weights, I have about 0.015" additional belt to sheave clearance than with Team Rooster's. My SLP tool seems a tad wider than a new belt.
It's just the first time I have seen where I could remove the shim(s) all-together and still have 0.018" belt to sheave clearance. I might try to find a 0.010" shim and run it at 0.028" just to be safe. I'm afraid with belt heat, the belt will swell and be too tight. Which is what sounds like happened to Sage.
