I had never changed drive belts before, so this was a new project for me, and I don't know how to properly check the tension in the various drive belts?

I tried to just feel what the tension was like in the belts before taking them off, and then getting roughly the same amount of tension in the belts when I put the new ones back on. But I'm assuming there is a way to proper way or at least have a good rule of thumb to use to check the tension in the drive belts?

Thanks for the help!

The 2 tensors should also be changed or the new belts want last very long .

Thanks for the tip.


Looks like I was able to find an answer to my questions and I'll have to drop about $100 to get a universal belt tension gauge. Oh well, I'm always looking for an excuse to get a new tool. :D
