VIDEO: Timing And Drive Belt Idler Pulley Bearing Loads

Both timing and drive belt systems use idler pulleys to tension and control the movement of the belt. If components on the timing or drive belt system are misaligned, the loads on the bearings are changed. The change in the loading of the bearing can result in damage and failure of the belt system.
