Grease on Rotar Belt on 9760 STS

Got a Problem!!!

Can't find where it is coming from. Is it the seal or over greasing the rotor. I added 6 to 8 shots 3 days ago, now have a problem. I don't think it is from over greasing! I could maintain rotor speed with no load but as soon as i feed in some crop speed drops off until warning light comes on

Any ideas would be great.

The seal in the piston too vary the speed is leaking. as it is a single acting cylinder the pressure bleeds down and the drive sheave opens up and your speed goes down.
I overgreased my sheaves before harvest. It took a round or two before the belt quit slipping in the heavier areas. I don't know if it helped, but when it started slipping, I got out and wiped away as much grease as I could. At first I too thought something was wrong as it seemed I was wiping away more grease than I had applied.
It does not take much to overgrease these...from experience.
