I'm pretty confident I'm doing what you describe, the standard procedure in the manual. I can get the belt onto both shafts, but only with both sheaves wide open
, the motor sheave up against its spring limit and the idler sheave open beyond the range of the speed control. (Note: I'm doing this on the Mark VII, but my experience was the same on the 5, just with a couple more gears in the mix.) I can't see how to make this work.
Could the belt be the right width, but too short?

The Pirelli belt is 48mm (31/64"), same as the one running on my low-mileage VII.

I notice there's a simpler provision for that on the VII, fwiw.
