i VieTEC said:my scissors are not holding together. The hole for the bolt holding it is completely stripped!!!
my theory on this is as follows:
wdsonny and I and others have not had any problems since the initial install of the scissors and the belt. Most of the people having this problem have probably either not tightened that bolt enough or overtightened it or just simply played with it many more times... OBVIOUSLY the female thread on the bracket is VERY weak and the more you go in there and loosen it, adjust the belt tension, tighten it... over and over... will weaken that thread even more. I only tightened ONE... yes (1) time after initial install and have never had a belt go outor even hear the belt slipping at all so i've never had to touch that bolt since. This is exactly why i am hesitant to do ANYTHING... if it aint broke dont fix it right?
I bet you any money if i was to keep messing with my belt tension eventually that scissor thread would get all weak and i'd blow the bolt out just like so many have... The installer for ECIGirlon19z sounds like he is not the best and what probably happened is just that... he tightened the belt several times to try to get it right... in the meanwhile.. weakening that thread something fierce...
just my 2 cents.... flame away :wavey:
