On the phi, the pinion hits the belt and wears it down. Has this happened to anybody else? Just after a few runs I will notice that the belt starts to come apart and "peel." Any suggestions???

1.) Use motor spacer and flip the pinion over.

2.) File down the set screw.

One thing I found is that the pinion screw touch the front belt, so I remove the length to all pinion screws. Dont allow that the screw over the bodie pinion. As you can imagine this will damage the belt if continues to touch.

Sorry Craig, I'm laughing with you. I originally posted 507 thinking "this is obvious, it says it on the website and in the book." Then when I looked at my post, it didn't seem right. I immediately editted my post hoping that no one saw it.

Thanks. Always wondered what that pitch was, now I know. I'll be able to figure out any belt now. Thanks again.
