I know I have lots of questions but the more I read on here the more confused I get. Everybody seems to say somethign different.
Sounds to me like you are very close with the cams. When I went to put the bar in the slots they were off about 1/8". I turned the cam just enough to slip the bar in place. Then put the pin in the hole. Now your good to go.
It will take several tries to get the belt on. If you don't keep the crank against the pin, there will be slop in the belt. Like I said, you'll get it after several tries. It does require patience, you got some on the shelve? LUK
