  • Ball wheel belt

    What is the easiest way to change a ball wheel belt, it has been YEARS since I have done this. I know the Cross Conveyor motor needs to be dropped, I'm thinking the jackshaft as well. Help is most appreciated, tackling this thing tomorrow morning. dont have the kind you can splice together.

      Rule number one -- don't rush it. Then go ahead and use Drillman's guide, it will help you thru.

      For me, the worst part is dealing with the cross conveyor back end. Other than that, the rest is just a matter of undoing and doing the various parts.

        Its not as bad as it looks! Just follow the instructions and take your time. You only want to use a spliced belt in an emergency situation.

          For that, I would shove a two foot long 2 by 4 between the cross conveyor and frame. That dropped the cross conveyor enough to thread the belt through.

          My toughest challenge was remounting the motor mount support.

            a big tip: make sure when you drop the motor mount, do it from the front side by removing the single 1/2 bolt.

              Thanks for all the help everyone. It went fine got it all on correctly, yeah that bolt on the front of the motor mount, luckily I had the forethought to get a piece of wood under it, and found out you have to remove the rear bolt form the turret belt guard to get the new belt through there. It took me 3 hours but had to catch a few calls in between. Again thanks for everything.
