I have to tell you the video describing the replacement of a belt was the best I have ever seen. I chose to replace the idler pulley as well after receipt of the ordered belt and this was a good decision. The net of it was watching the video a couple times in advance of the effort was all the training required. I followed the video steps, found the old pulley, threw it away, ordered the new idler pulley, taped the new belt onto the drum, inserted the pulley, wrapped the belt past the pulley and onto the motor as instructed and applauded the ease of this effort.
