When installing the new Idler Pulley, part 216 (WE12X83), how far does the part 234 cap nut (WE2X329) need to be slid onto the idler pulley arm? Should it leave the maximum amount of play for the pulley and be placed towards the end of the arm rod, or should it be pushed far enough in to keep the idler pulley from sliding too far out of alignment with the motor pulley? Or does it matter since it self-aligns? Thank you!
ANSWER Hello Dave,
You would want to put the push nut with little play for the pulley to get out of alignment with the motor pulley.
