I need help changing the be belt on a Dewalt 734 planer.

Installing a New Belt
NOTE: No tools are necessary to install a belt. The use of a
screwdriver or other tool to pry or stretch a belt may cause
damage to the pulleys and ultimately destroy the new belt.
1. Remove the crank handle.
2. Remove the two hex screws from the top, right side of
the planer.
3. Remove the two, small cross head screws securing the
side panels to the top of the planer.
4. Lift the side panel up out of the slot in the base and
remove the panel from the machine. Notice the grooves
inside the belt.
5. Start the belt on the top pulley (P) with 3 grooves on the
pulley, as shown in Figure 22.
6. Guide the belt between the lower pulley and the height
adjustment screw (Q), as shown in Figure 23.
7. With three grooves engaged on the large pulley, rotate
the pulley clockwise. Keep pressure on the edge of the
belt to keep the grooves engaged on the small pulley.
8. Continue pressure on the side of the belt and rotate
the large pulley while hopping the belt further onto the
pulleys, as shown in Figure 24.
9. All of the belt grooves should be engaged in the final
position and the pulleys should rotate smoothly.
10. Reinstall the side cover and the screws. Do not
overtighten the self-tapping screws.

Drive Belts



See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Check the condition and tension of all drive belts every 12,000 miles, or at least once a year. Loose drive belts can lead to poor engine cooling and diminished alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, or emission air pump output. A belt that is too tight places a strain on the bearings in the driven component.

Fig. Fig. 2: An example of a healthy drive belt

0900c15280215ae6.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 3: Deep cracks in this belt will cause flex, building up heat that will eventually lead to belt failure

0900c15280215ae8.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 5: Installing too wide a belt can result in serious belt wear and/or breakage
Replace any drive belt that is glazed, worn, cracked, or stretched to the point where correct adjustment tension is impossible. If two belts are used to drive a component, always replace both belts when replacement is necessary. After installing a new belt, run the engine for ten minutes, shut OFF the engine and recheck the belt tension. Readjust if necessary.

Fig. Fig. 10: Engine belt tension chart-1994-95 models
Two popular methods of checking drive belt adjustment are; the Belt Tension Gauge Method and the Belt Deflection Method. The former requires a special gauge and the latter requires a straight edge and scale or just a good eye for measurement. The deflection method will be used in the following belt replacement instructions. A rule of thumb for checking belt tension by the deflection method is to determine the midpoint between two pulleys of the drive belt and press down at that point with moderate thumb pressure. The belt should deflect to the measurement indicated in the following installation procedures. Adjustment is necessary if the belt is either too loose or too tight.

WARNING A belt adjustment which is either too loose or too tight will eventually damage the accessory that belt is driving. A too loose adjustment allows free-play in the belt which could transfer a whipping motion or shock to the accessory drive pulley. Similarly, a belt which is too tight will preload the accessory bearings, leading to early failure.


See Figure 11

How to replace a thermostat on a 1998 cabriolet 2.8 litre V6

1998 Audi 2.8 litre V6 Thermostat is located next to the water pump, it can not be seen with all the timing covers in place. It takes about 7 hours of labor to replace, and should be done when the timing belt/ water pump is done.
Full set of 3/8" drive sockets, 10mm, 13mm, 19mm (12pt) for sure.
Torx sockets: T45, T40, T30, possibly others, make sure to have a variety.
Allen Sockets/Wrenches: 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm
Wrenches: 10mm, 32mm (I believe or a large-1 1/4"- crescent wrench)
Pliers and Phillips and Standard screwdrivers
Straight edge, long flat bar, decent yard stick or something similar about 3 ft long.
Front Bumper Removal:
1. Lift vehicle and place on jack stands.
2. Remove plastic belly pan, there are about 8 screws holding it in.
3. Remove 4 10mm bolts from the inner fender wells, near the bottom.
4. Remove 6 10mm nuts from the fender-bumper attachment. These are a little tricky to find, I removed a headlight to get an eye on them but all you really need to do is lay under the car and look for them. There are 3 on each side and run vertically along the seam of the bumper/fender. tdisline_892.jpg 5. Disconnect the tube that runs to the headlight washers. To do this find the point that it connects at a white junction near the drivers fender and twist and pull them apart. Put a bucket under it to catch the fluid or plug it with a bolt and clamp it off.
6. Remove fog light grilles. Also unplug the foglights from the wiring harness and the two horns as well.
7. Remove 2 really long bumper studs. They are an allen head 6mm or 8mm.
8. Carefully pull the fender edge of the bumper away, there are plastic guides that need to pop out.
9. Detach lower fender/bumper section by pulling down and away.
10. The bumper should pull straight out now. tdisline_893.jpg Core Support Removal:
1. Drain the radiator by removing the coolant reservoir cap and then unscrewing the drain plug on the lower right corner of the radiator. You don't need to have it completely removed but you need to have a bucket to the right of it to catch the coolant.
2. Remove air temperature sensor from the bracket.
3. Remove the two air deflectors next to the radiator. (1 phillips screw each)
4. Remove the hood release, it pops out of its bracket then the ball is easy to get out. It needs to be taken out of the way.
5. Remove 2 bolts that hold the power steering cooler on. It is the oddly bent tube in front of the radiators. Swing the tube out of the way as far as possible.
6. Remove 4 bolts attaching the top of the AC radiator. Lift the radiator out of the lower rubber mounts. Swing the AC radiator to the passenger wheel. You will have to rotate it 180 degrees as you are bringing it around so you don't damage or kink any lines.
7. Under a black cover next to the ABS block you will find a large gathering of wires. Unplug all of them and detach the holster by pressing two clips under it and pulling it up. One of the wires needs to be taken out of this that goes to a sensor rearward.
8. Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses. The upper I had to remove from the radiator, which is fairly scary since the radiator sides are plastic and it is really hard to get off. There is a metal clip that you pop up with a screwdriver or pliers and then you just wiggle it off or use a screwdriver to carefully pry it off. The lower hose disconnected easily from the water inlet on the block side by taking the clamp down and wiggling it until it came off. You may need to try to get a screwdriver in there to get it to detach.
9. Disconnect the headlight wiring harnesses.
10. Remove the Torx bolts from the to of the core support (4), the sides under the headlights (2) and then the 7 larger ones that are attached with the bumper brackets. Now you can swing the core support to the right. The transmission coolant lines are still attached, and since the ****** is sealed you don't want to mess with those or kink them. If you have a 6 speed you probably can just remove the radiator core support entirely now.
11. You now have a clear view of the front of the motor.
Timing Belt/Water Pump Disassembly:
1. Here is a shot I took just after I started taking pictures. It shows the proper route for the serpentine. Trust me it will only go on one way, but if you forget how it could take a bit to figure out.
2. Remove the 3 top covers. To do this you will have to remove the coolant reservoir (3 screws) and the top of the airbox.
3. Remove the serpentine belt by using a large socket and pulling the tensioner loose then putting a pin or small screwdriver in the pin hole. You can now slide the belt off. It is very important to pin the tensioner. If you don't, you will need to buy a new one. The spring is very strong and pretty much impossible to get back together right.
4. Remove the tensioner, 2 allen bolts I believe.
5. Remove the power steering pulley, by placing an 8mm allen wrench in the center and removing the 3 6mm allen bolts.
6. Remove the clutch fan, 4 4mm allen bolts, then I used an allen wrench to keep the pulley from turning and removed the clutch with a large crescent wrench (1 1/4"). It is right hand threaded. You will need to loosen it clockwise rather than counter clockwise.
7. Now remove the Clutch fan bracket, there are 2 exposed allen bolts, and two hidden. One is below the threaded spindle of the clutch fan and is the same size as the others, and the last one is a size smaller and is removed through one of the small holes in the pulley.
8. Remove the cam gear/timing belt covers.
9. Now take your 19mm 12 pt socket and ratchet and turn the crank until the timing mark lines up with the arrow on the shield. This is very important to make sure everything lines up properly.
10. Mark the cam gears using a straight edge that reaches across the motor on the gears and a part of the housing. This is vital to the life of your motor.
11. Remove the 6 small allen bolts that hold the crank pulley/harmonic damper on. Remove the 10mm bolts that hold the lower timing belt shield and remove the shield.
12. Use an allen wrench to turn the timing belt tensioner all the way back and then put a strong piece of wire in the way to hold the pressure loaded tensioner back.
13. Remove the large bolt that holds the timing belt roller and the small bolt that holds the tensioner on.
14. Carefully remove the timing belt, it is hard to turn the gears but you may accidentally if you are not paying attention.
15. Remove the water pump; it has about 8 10mm bolts and 2 10mm nuts.
16. Use this opportunity to clean all the dirt and grime from wherever you can.

How to align new belt, the belt works to one side when it is turned on

Hi Michelle,
Typically, you'll need a 3/16" allen wrench or a similar size allen wrench, you may have been provided one with your machine.
1. unfold your unit (as applicable)
2. at the end that you just laid down, there's typically two allen screws, one on each side of the belt
3. Turn your treadmill on, 3 rpm or so.
4. Adjust the allen screws and watch the belt track one way or the other.
for instance, if you tighten the right side screw (turning it CW) this will pull the roller closer to you, tighting the belt on the right, this should make the belt move to the left - since it is NOT as tight.
5. adjust the left side the same way if you want the belt to go right
6. if you need to tighten the belt, alternate both screws CW until the belt is tight.
7. conversely, turn the screws CCW if you need to loosen the belt.

Added note: be sure to use some belt lubricant as directed by your user's manual, to prolong your treadmills life. Belts run about $100 and most people will throw their treadmill out, before spending that kind of cash on it. so,'s worth the $10 to buy the lubricant!

Enjoy! and I hope you stick with it!
