As I engage my "belt tightener" (the lever that drives any impelement) my drive belt tension changes. The drive belt also affects the tension on my belt tightener. Are these supposed to work in unison or is something binding? Everything works, I just dont understand why they affect each other. Thanks in advance Bolens1000 :) and thanks for getting me those parts out so fast. You have been a huge help.

It should be a separate unit that will not affect drive belt tension but I'll have to let the guys who have used these later ones answer the question, I never used this model with that PTO
