Very well done Octane.

The only thing that I could possibly add is a measurement for belt slackfor guys like me that don't always trust the spring tension.

1/8" to 3/16" beltslack is just about right with the crank is at T1 andthe left pulleyat theUP position. After the leftbelt is adjusted you then spin the engine 360 degrees to get the UP mark on the right pulley facing downward then adjust the belt tension to the above mentioned slack.

That measurement is taken at the center point between the two pulleys and you just use two fingers to lightly flex the belt up and down.
