  3. Inspect drive belt deflection at a point on the belt midway between pulleys.

    Inspection should be done only when engine is cold, or over 30 minutes after engine is stopped
     
    Measure belt tension with tension gauge (BT3373-F or equivalent) at points marked
     
    When measuring deflection, apply 22 lbs. (98 N) at the marked point
     
    Adjust if belt deflection exceeds the limit or if belt tension is not within specifications

  5. Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.
