    This should be posted to the section of the website that contains all the other machine documents so it's easily found by users that aren't visiting the forums.

    Please don't hi-jack threads and take them off topic.. it makes using the search function very difficult and doesn't help get your, or the original posters concerns addressed.

    Reading through the PDF I wanted to mention that in the section where you are instructed how to re-tighten a loose Y-Belt that it should be noted it's possible to over-tighten this and cause damage to the gears of the Y motor pack... I speak this from experience !

    The article mentions 4 approved lubricants for the guide posts and lead screws and none of them are the lithium grease which was recommended in the head pressure PDF... is this a change that replaces previous recommendations?

    IF the belt was "overtightned" what is the way to set the correct tension to have on the belt. I"ve heard some say to turn the belt with your fingers and if it turns so much, then it's OK. Just looking for some type of recommendation on correct tension.

    The info I got over the phone back when I made the adjustment was to slide the Z truck to the front of the machine and then towards the back end of the machine, press the upper half of the Y belt down. You should not be able to easily press it down to a point where it can touch the other half. When I loosened the screw and tightened the belt I put what was most likely excessive force on the plate and ended up bending the gear...
