The belt has grooves which must go on the motor pulley grooves. The spring loaded pulley is then pulled over and the belt goes around it. Usually the belt is on the drum grooves up. Google the unit for a picture.

SOURCE: belt was loose, so checked it the tension pully

There must be an adjuster on the pully to increase tension.

How do i get the belt around the motor pully wheel on a white knite cl637wv

If you can't push the tensioner pulley back far enough to allow the belt to go around it, disconnect the tensioner spring, route the belt, then reconnect the spring. If it's a question of having adequate strength to push against the spring and still have a hand free to route the belt, find something to jam against the tensioner to hold a bit of slack in the pulley. Make sure the jamming tool (large screwdriver, block of wood, etc.) is sturdy enough to hold securely, and well-braced. An ill-timed slip could cause severe hand injury.

If your dryer does not have a belt tensioner mechanism, the motor bracket probably has belt adjustment slots in it. In that case, loosen (but do not remove) the motor mounting bolts that go through the slots, push the motor over a bit to give you the slack you need,route the belt, then pull the motor back to tighten the belt and retighten the motor bolts. Sometimes a tight belt can be rolled onto the pulley by starting it on one side of the pulley and turning the pulley by hand while pushing the belt along in the direction of the turn, but it is better to mount the belt with slack in it; excess stretching causes premature failure.

I just bought an old enco 400005. How do you change/tighten the belts?

I'm not familiar with this particular model, but most drill presses have a similar design. The top cover should flip up, exposing the the pulleys and belts. At the back end of the machine where the motor is located, there should be one or two bolts that put tension on the motor, which in turn tightens the belts. When these bolts/nuts are loosened, it should put slack on the belt (s)., allowing the belt to be taken off. There may also be an tensioned idler arm/pulley which puts tension on the belt, such as an intermediate belt. That pulley can be moved to release tension as well. After new belt(s) is installed re-tighten the motor tensioning bolt/nut, allowing for some slack in the belt.

Need to change driving belt?

Disconnect the Washing machine power cord from the wall.

lay over the washing machine carefully towards the washing machine door and prop up securely or put up on blocks so you can get adequate access to replace belt, there is no access from the back, you will have to get access from underneath. be carefull.

There is a bolt that needs slacking off so you can get the new belt on (adjustment - Tensioned) this is usually on the electric motor, do not completely remove, only slacken to give adequate room to put new belt on. once you have the new belt on, take up the slack and tighten the bolt. do not over tighten the belt, allow the belt when on to move sideways about one finger width.

Is there a tension pully for the serpintine belt on a 92 honda accord

no, you set the tension by slackening the bolts on the alternator and using a long handle screwdriver wedged between engine and alternator tighten so that the longest part of the belt between pulleys has about 1/2 to 3/4 inch slack too tight and the belt will snap very soon....too slack and the belt will slip...

I pick a new alternator on and now i have a lot of slack in the belt and i tighten the power steering pulley to tighten it and i still have all kinds of lack.

Check the idle pully to see if there is any give in the pully(up and down,and sideways)If so ,replace it.If all the pullys are ok,then get a shorter belt.

How to tighten my 306 dt 98 fan belt

you need to take off the drivers front wheel and plastic cover infront of the engine.
then you need to crack off two allen key type bolts holding the braket and tensioner pully in place, that is positioned just right of the crankshaft pully. Once the whole unit is slack you have to loosen the adjuster that is visible underneath the tensioner braket to take the tension off the belt. Once the belt is loose enough take it off and reverse process avoiding overtightening new belt. [It needs a little give to avoid damging bearings in the pully]

Where do I loosen my belt that is runs A/C on 2000 Toyota Sienna?

One of those "wheels" or TENSIONER PULLYS on your vehicle is the tensioner for the a/c compressor. You will need to look at it and see if there is an adjustment bolt behind pully. If there is, loosen center pully nut, then run adjustment bolt out to slack out the belt. Replace belt and reverse prosedure. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BELT,as you can damage pullys and or belt. Tighten to factory specs. Rule of thumb is pulling the belt out and check for slack. No more/less than one inch slack.

On-line step by step guide to change timing belt.

this is the best guide/instructions I could find on the net and I do allot of this.
take the timing cover off the belt there should be a gear below the camshaft pully its a tensioner use a peice of chalk and mark the very top of the cam pully and the very bottom of the crank pully do your best not to turn them loosen the tensioner pully the belt will loosen up take it off put the new one on if you turned the pully put it back slowly tighten the belt when its tight if the pully turned when tightening pull the slack out by hand then tighten it both chalk marks should be lined up if they are start the car always unplug the battery first and dont rotate the pullys more than a few inches if nessacery when the belt is off you could cause damage to the valves
