I've been trying this summer to get my primary drive tensioned properly, and have run into some difficulty. I've been running a belt drive for a couple years with no trouble. Last fall I noticed my final chain getting tight, so I would adjust things, and it would be okay for a while before tightening up. So then I bought a left-side gearbox adjuster and put that in thinking it would solve the problem, but it didn't. Now I'm wondering if the problem might be that the hole for the top gearbox mounting bolt is worn. That would explain why it would start out loose enough, but get tighter, even though the gearbox adjusters are keeping the bolt locked in place. So I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this, and can anything be done to fix it? Thanks for any info.
