On handwheel and sheave, loosen (2) 1/4-20 set screws with 1/8 hex wrench. loosen 1/4-20 set screw at center of pulley. Remove handwheel from spindle by unscrewing clockwise. Slide spindle out of headstock. Remove pulley from headstock. Place belt over pulley, and insert spindle through pulley, lining up key in keyway. Note position of pulley - it steps down toward the left. Tighten (2) 1/4-20 set screws on pulley. With wave washer in place, re-install handwheel by screwing counterclockwise. Tighten (2) 1/4-20 set screws in handwheel. Start turning.
