    We apologize for the dirt but we have been getting a little rain here-a-bouts recently............

    Does this look right?

    Was the Slingshot moved in reverse just before the pic was taken? If so, try going forward several yards and check again. The belt will position differently after forward rotations vs reverse rotations.

    The left pic looks like something is mis- aligned. The right pic looks ok.

    Looks good to me, rear is perfect, front looks OK. You have to look at the very top of the front sprocket to read the real path of the belt.

    Thanks folks, the belt around the angle drive just looked like it was running to the inside maybe more than it should......................

    Under pressure it walks to the middle.
