hi folks.using the old imp today and the motor stalled.had a look and the belt drive was very tight.adjusted it as much as I could ,every thing working but belt so tight.then started to throw the belt off with the motor as far forward as possible on adjustment real struggle to get the belt on to the pulleys.any ideas and any suggestions where I might find a supplier for a belt..

Flicking through the video it seems there's a website with much information on the machine.
