Question Belt adjustment

Hi Everyone i was just wondering how high/low in the secondary clutch should the belt on my 1997 xcf be right now it is about 2-3mm down inside of the secondary clutch. If this is to low how would i go about adjusting it, there are 3 screws and a plate with a dial that i know adjust's the belt but do i just loosten the bolts ant turn the dial because i tried this and wheni try ti turn it it is very hard unless i push the belt manually down into the clutch. Is there any proceadure involved if so it would be very helpfull


P.S. I do not have my owner's manual, and that is where it tells you how to do this lol.

Should be a 1/16 above the sheaves, and you are doing it corect. By pushing the belt down you are taking pressure off the pins behind the plate and the plate will move eaisier.

Thanks Big Bore King that really helped. I wasn't shure if i was doing it right.

Also i am using a belt with teeth on top and bottom and the top teeth are about 3/16 of an inch high so where do i measure
the 1/16 of an inch, from on top of the top teeth or between them.
