Bar-tek toothed belt conversion
« on: October 02, 2014, 12:34:48 pm »
Hey guys and girls. Just installed my new belt kit from bar-tek and just wondering how much tension should the belt be under. Doesn't seem crazy tight but just seemed the make more of a wining noise than I thought it would, even on tick over. :-s any advice? Cheers.

when i got my steel ones i noticed compared to the psd alloy ones there a louder in whine.

Tension it like your cambelt, longest length 90degree turn is good.
