Tw acustic set up query ac3

Anyone know how much tension to put in the belt? I was advised on buying the truck that just so it turns the platter is fine but the nerd in me thinks there would be a measurement re how far the motor is from the spindle or just a loose or tight school of thought

Anyone got a clue?

As loose as possible without the belt slipping or oscillating.

Pretty much what I did thanks, lots of tweak potential in this deck but looks like the belt is simple enough

How I’d normally do it is hold the platter so it can’t spin turn it on and move the motor pod out until the motor stalls and can’t slip on the belt.
