Hi!  


After reading Jays topic about clicking and Julia's repair manual for the bushing I was wondering how we could make sure that we have the correct belt tension after any maintenance repairs. Here's my solution....


There's a free app for the iPhone called "tension2go". Simply write down the frequency of your belts before the repair (use the belt side without the carrier). The video shows you how to do that. I would also recommend to loosen the grub screws on one of the pulleys so that the tension can equalize on top and bottom when you do any adjustments to the tension or if you see strong deviations in frequency when you change the position of the head.


Make sure to perform a couple repeat tests to verify the value.

My belts are all around 80Hz... very repeatable. 
Let me know how yours come out!


Very Happy
