Re: 2166 Separator Drive Belt

Check the tighener idler that runs on the back side of the belt. It could be excessively worn, bearing going bad in the idler or the pivot bushings wornout on the idler arm. If the idler is not aligned with the belt 100% it will cause excessive heat and peel the back off the belt. If thats not it start looking at alignment when engaged. Motor mounts could be worn and allowing the engine to twist out of alignment under load. How many hours on the machine?

Re: 2166 Separator Drive Belt

I wouldn't worry about it if it runs. I ran my 2166 three and half seasons with it split. Would have run longer if I would have throttled down when I shut the separator off. Every year during my preseason inspection they told me to fix it.
