    I just bought a new Speedcaster 2 for my 2500hd. The manual says how to adjust the conveyor belt but not how to check if it needs it. It seems very loose, but not sure it isn't suppose to be that way. Anyone know how I can determine if the belt should be tightened?

    I can't give you a scientific way to do it but if it feels loose tighten it. I bought one a couple of years ago, go out the first storm with a load of salt/sand mix. plow the lot, turn it on and nothing:angry: . I had to tighten the thing in the dark and snow. It is also a huge pain to tighten while on the vehicle. If it feels loose go with your gut.
