  • PBL ratchet belt

    Having trouble getting enough tension on the let that drives the ratchet pulley. tried new belts and adjusting the tension pulley with different springs.

    as soon as ball enters the lift belt pulley still turns on ball lift but belt wont turn.

    Is there anything broken on the lift? Links, shock? The set in screw for that pulleys clutch race could be loose.

      That's just what I was thinking. Take a look and make sure the set screw is lined up with the pulley set screws. If not, line it up and tighten it up and see what happens.

        Check the drive pulley on the lift to make sure the 1450 belt isn't bottoming out in it. V-bet pulleys should not be making contact with the belt on the bottom surface.

          You can run to the hardware or auto parts store and get yourself a 44" belt to get you by until you figure the problem out.

            Is this PBL a recent rebuild? Any chance you put the smaller rudder drive pulley on the ratchet side of the PBL? That's the only reason we've ever had trouble getting proper tension on the 1450 ratchet drive belt, someone put the wrong pulley on that side of the PBL during the rebuild. The ratchet drive pulley is a little larger.

              If those smaller pulleys are reversed the rudder will run awfully fast.
