Can anyone inform me on the Black Diamond Belt Deflection Adjuster? I'm curious if this is a direct replacement for the stock plastic adjuster? The stock install/removal tool doesn't seem to fit this component and I'm wondering what all needs to be known relating to installation and adjustability before I actually decide to install/run this part.

Thanks,
-John

I have that setup on my m6. You will also need to purchase the "tss clutch tool". the setup makes changinf belts a breeze. I wish cat would use this setup from the factory. As far as the setup goes you just need to make sure you got the belt tension setup correct.

Just grind the centre off the tool in your tool kit.
and set the belt till the ribs only, but not a solid part of the belt is above the clutch....mine squeeks a bit when the belt is new set like that, but it pulls better that way and i could care less if it squeeks a little when hot.



Dude, Hold my beer and watch this !

It works, but the tool they sell is a piece of junk. Mine broke the first time I used it and they are impossible to get in contact with to get a replacement.

CORMORANT15641,
So it sounds like you like the actual aluminum adjuster nut but are unhappy with the tool and customer support/relations of BD Extreme, correct?


What have you done as far as a tool....did you modify your stock adjuster nut tool like mcflying suggested?

Thanks,
-John

I think I'd go with this one from Fett Brothers.

I have the whole BD setup.
I could have taken the white plastic adjuster nut out of the second, and run it without any adjuster and had proper belt deflection. The BD tool is nice for turning in the spring adjuster.

That's Danny Hubbards design. Works Excellent! Was the first thing I put on the Crossfire.

The problem is with the tool. The cheasy aluminum tab that you turn when you thread it in and out broke the first time I used it. I am still using the tool but had to drill a hole in the area where the tab broke off so I can loosen & tighten it with a punch.
