Delta 22-560 Planer

I had to replace the cutterhead pulley and drive belt but cannot get the drive belt to track (centered) on the two pulleys.  It tracks about and eighth of an inch over the edge (towards the guard) but does not drift.  I checked the pulleys for alignment and that is fine.  Any suggestions?

I have not even tried to remove the pulley from the motor shaft, the cutterhead pulley cannot be reversed.  I have talked with a Delta tech rep, but have not solved the problem yet.  Thanks for the response.

Re: Delta 22-560 Planer

Did you follow the manufacturer's instructions to the letter, it's very specific? It might be worthwhile to do it over again, something's not seating properly.

 

How do I replace the belt on the 22-560, 22-580, & 22-540 planers?

Lower the head about 3 inches from the top.
Remove the locking handle and shaft.
Remove the side panel.
Remove the belt guard.
Remove the Bolt from the end of the motor.
Remove the dust chute and chip deflector.
Rotate the Motor toward the cutterhead.
Remove old belt.
Put new belt on in reverse order.

Thanks, Hank.  I was on the site a few times but was not able to find much until now.

Re: Delta 22-560 Planer

Thanks again, Hank.  I must have had too much tension on the belt, it is running fine now.

Glad to help Stew, nothing more frustrating than thinking it's never gonna get any better.
