belt tension-pully "fluctuation"?

    Never really paid any attention to how much "play" (somewhat?)the tension-pully had when new, but just wondering how other people's Metro HPs are.

    Doubt I'm explaining it right, and can't think of the right words.

    Belt is adjusted right, and I always take the spring off to grease, but how much flucuation should there be? Just wanting to make sure the bushing is acting right, but none to compare it to.

    Might just be because it's the slack-side of the belt. Like to stay on top of any poss. future problems. (stich in time)

    Didn't know how much "flopping" (rapid back an forth movement) I should see when engaged. (figured I better ask, incase everbody else's really dosen't move much when engaged) (have to order a few more items, and like to order all at once, incase I need another bushing)
