How does it look from the side? Badly glazed? Frayed? Chunks missing?

The secondary could use some adjustment, the belt should be riding just out of the sheaves.

None of my belts do that. There is a little play but nothing like that.

There should be 1 1/4" belt deflection. Usually, if the secondary is adjusted so the belt is riding just out of the sheaves, the deflection is very close to spec.

First, pull the belt into the secondary to take the stress off of the screws. Loosen the three small screws on the gold adjusting ring on the outside of the clutch. Rotate the cam ring counter-clockwise to reduce the distance between the sheaves. Don't rotate past the number 1, it will be a bugger to get open if you do.

You won't know what the adjustment is until the clutch can rotate. Do your best to pull the belt out to the outer edge of the secondary. If you can elevate the back of the sled, start the sled and let the track rotate a few times. That will allow the belt to operate normally. If you try to take off with the belt down in the clutch, it will be like taking off in your car in third gear; sluggish and unresponsive. You also take a chance on burning the belt.

Re: How bad is this belt

I was going to rotate the disc but it looks like it's maxed counterclockwise already
