Forst ST8 belt/tensioner question

Recommended Posts

I sent an email yesterday to Redwood with the pictures after my conversation, as these things can be confused over the phone, when I get a reply I’ll update.

I would want it on the outside. To put more belt on the pulleys so it could be run at a lower tension without slipping. 


But it looks like those belts would be to long to run it the other way.

I have a ST8 with the upgrade 50hp engine and my pulley is the same as your picture.

You mean the photo of my machine as opposed to the drawing? (Just checking)

Thanks BB, set my mind at ease.


On another note, I have not heard of the upgraded engine, got time to tell us about it?
