But, Did you actually figure it out?
You changed 3 things there.
- Was it feed rate?
- or the tracking bolt head?

- or was it the drive belt?
I'm not sure because I pretty much did all 3 things at the same time...but I did figure out, the first time I adjusted the drive belt, I just loosened it up because I was looking at the wrong manual.  I have auto clutch, and that's the one I should have been looking at.  Maybe Woodmizer should address this issue since it's such a critical adjustment.


 
Good thing is, I think she's sawing like she supposed to now!

Marty probably told you to get the jam nut good and tight. I have a feeling if you slow your feed rate back down the marks would come back.
Woodmizer has a pile of maintenance videos available, including a LT40 drive belt one.
