When I was installing the belt on my 190E 16 vlave, I broke the "idler tension adjuster rod". What is the correct method of adjusting the belt tension? My understanding is that the pointer on the idler points to the left mark (small end of the incline) and you tighten the adjuster until the pointer points to the right hand mark (large end of the incline). I was about 75% there when the rod broke. I believe that the center bolt was loose. Any thoughts or assistance?
