    Hold the brake with your right hand, with your left hand grasp the belt just ahead of the secondary and pull up- this forces the sheaves open and you can flip the belt off with one hand in about 3 seconds.

    thanks, I have gotten the belt off and back on now... I would like to know how much slack it should have and how to adjust it...

    Take a straight edge of some kind (yard stick) and lay it on the top of your primary and secondary clutches. Push down on the belt midway between the clutches- you should have about 1 1/4" of deflection. Adjustment for this is on the outside of your secondary clutch- should be a little slotted collar at the center with some numbers. Your belt should ride about 1/8" above secondary clutch sheave.

    with a good COLD belt the deflection should be (with some sort of sraitedge across both clutches on top of belt) should be around 1/2 inch when pushed till tension comes out of belt.
    This worked great as I was trying to do it with the track on the ground before. As for the adjustments on a 2005 Indy 500 Classic it takes a 3/8 wrench and is a piece of cake to do. Just loosen the three bolts on the driven, rear clutch, and rotate the plate to the second from the left for starters. Tighten them up and run the sled, even on the stand. Shut it down and check the deflection. Mine is about 1 inch with that setting. On the stand the track turns some but not when it's on the ground. I gained 25 mph by just adjusting after putting the new belt on. The old belt had a half dozen teeth missing and that was causing a clanking noise before. Glad it didn't let go on my 85 mile trip the other day. Now, off to buy a new spare.
