1) The belt comes from the factory extremely tight. Loosen the tensioner using the screw shown, and it will prevent the entire problem from occurring
2) The bolts come loose, whether due to damaged Cam wheel, or weak plastic in Flywheel, or the tension from the belt….unknown.
3) The bolts get stripped then they tear up the flywheel, and “waller” out the holes in the cam shaft wheel.
Here is what genius Mike did to fix the problem:
He 3-D printed some snap-on reinforcements for the plastic flywheel
He bored out my damaged “stretched” cam shaft wheel holes to a larger caliber until they were round again.
He replaced the bolts with bolts that exactly fit the new bored out holes. The bolts he chose had “shoulders” on it, meaning the threads did not come all the way up to the bolt head…they have bald portion, to fit snugly into the cam shaft wheel.
He used the strongest “locktight” (red) to secure the bolts.
He loosened the belt tension.
The machine works WONDERFULLY!!!!! Purrs like a kitten.
Nautilus, take note. If you care to fix your machine’s problems, contact Mike.
