|Move the lower wheel and drive assembly out of the way.|
|Hang the belt over the drive wheel.|
|If you have a 3" high friend, get them to help here. Where are all the pixies and fairies when a guy needs a hand? Otherwise, use a screwdriver or similar blunt tool and your thinnest fingers to get the belt in place as you swing the bearing assembly back in line.|
|Bolt the bearing assembly back in place.|
|Screw the speed adjustment arm back into place in the adjustment nut and with the two bolts to the bearing assembly fixture.|
|Use the wheel unscrewed to the speed shaft to adjust the bottom pulleys as close together as possible. This will give the slowest speed for the lathe.|
Now it is a matter of tightening the belt and replacing the lathe covers in the order in which they were removed.
