So I had a drive shaft fail, and got a new one (Thanks!!). But once I install it, I notice the two drive gears don’t line up…one is too high/low, so the belt is at a weird angle and I’m afraid it will throw the belt under load at speed.
No biggie, I’ll just adjust the pulley on the shaft, right? No dice.
When I do it on the drive shaft, the whole thing slides out of its bearings just like it did before…so apparently the pulley holds the drive shaft in place now. Again, no biggie – there’s some wiggle-room on the motor.
So, I try to lower the motor drive, and no luck. Set screws are practically totally out, and the dang thing doesnt budge. I dont want to torque it too much and bend the motor shaft, so I took a break to write this here.
