  • pbl belts

    I had to replace a bearing in the upper pulley on one of my pbl's and now I can't get the belt back on. The mech at our other center said to just roll it onto the pulley. I told him ok, I've done it to others when the belt fel off the ball and rolled itself off the pulley but I can't get this one to roll back on. This is the first pbl I've actually had to do any real repair work to that I couldn't get the belt back on. Is there an easier way to get the stupid thing on? We run the black belts by gates.
    Duct tape and cable ties = a solution to all your woes!

    Re: pbl belts

    Sounds like your PBL is still on the machine.

    If you can't get the belt on with two people then you will have to take out the top two jam bolts. They are next to the upper link, then pull the PBL out far enough to get a spanner wrench on the compression spring nut. Loosen it enough to get your belt on then tighten the nut back down and compress the spring to 4 inches.

    If balls are kicking off your belt then your PBL is not lined up correctly. The belt must always be on top of the ball or your belt will keep popping off.

    Good Luck

        Felix, where did you get that or did you make it? I really would like to have one of those.
        Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

            Felix: nice tool! The Stahl's one utilizes a large bolt that you turn with a socket and ratchet, rather than a lever. Works great!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
