Lt10 drive belt tension setting
« on: May 01, 2019, 10:28:58 PM »
Hello everyone I was looking for the drive belt setting for my woodmizer lt10 I changed the motor from a 7hp Kohler to a 13hp predator motor and was wondering if that would affect what the setting may be for it, if not then I would be looking for what the setting is. 
Thanks for your time guys and gals
Sean

Sean, might want to go to the front page and scroll all the way to the bottom and talk to the Wood-Mizer folks!
