1 - Headstock with textured gray powder/paint.
2 - Alignment of shaft in cover plate is clearly off and adjusted to the max.
3 - belt in 4th groove
4 - adjusting offset. adjusting back a groove and re-tensioning.
Edit: The offset is difficult to rotate. Is there a recommended lube for this? I have to use a small screwdriver in there and a hammer to tap it around the circle. Tensioning will be difficult. Seems there should be a better way to tension a belt like a lever and lock.
EDIT 2: Broken bolt/screw above the offset tensioner. What is that for? Extraction looks fun.
Wondering if the belt wore in to this angle.
