These instructions are for the replacement of the Tilmor Plastic Winder Tensioner Bushing.
Remove the tension from the belt by adjusting the tensioner (A) to the lowest position (B).
Remove the seven 1/4” bolts (D) and the seven 1/4” flat washers around the outside perimeter and remove the pulley cover (C).
Remove the belt from the pulleys.
To remove the tensioner pulley (F) remove the 3/8” bolt (E), secured in place by a 3/8” locking flange nut.
Remove the tensioner assembly by removing the 1/2” locking nut (G) that secures the tensioner to the top cover.
Remove the 1/2” lock nut (J), 1/2” bolt (H), and 1/2” washer (I) from the tensioner assembly.
Remove the bushings (K) from the tensioner assembly.
Install the new bushings into the tensioner assembly.
Install the 1/2” bolt with the flat washer installed through the tensioner assembly. Secure the 1/2” bolt in place with a 1/2” lock nut (L). Tighten the nut down until it is snug and then loosen the nut one thread. The assembly should rotate freely on the 1/2” bolt.
Position tensioner assembly in the top cover. Insert the tensioner mounting bolt through the upper mounting hole (M).
Ensure that the torsion spring adjustment handle (N) is placed through the top cover (O).
Secure the tensioner in place with the 1/2” locking flange nut (G). Torque the flange nut to 85 ft-lbs (115 Nm).
Place a 3/8” washer on the 3/8” bolt, followed by the tensioner pulley and another 3/8” washer as shown below.
Install the pulley onto the tensioner pulley mount in the center mounting hole (P).
Secure the tensioner pulley in place using a 3/8” locking flange nut. Torque the 3/8” bolt to 35 ft-lbs (47 Nm).
Ensure that the tensioner pulley is in line with the idler pulley and the reel drive pulley.
Install the belt, by routing the belt around the pulleys.
Set the belt tension as required by adjusting the tension adjustment lever.
Reinstall the pulley cover. Torque the seven 1/4” bolts (D) with 1/4" washers to 100 in-lbs (11 Nm).
