Last trip out I broke a belt on one of my Scotty Electrics. Not big deal as I had a spare belt and put it on. That's when the problem started. When pulling the lever back to drop the ball it would not pay out freely. I opened the cover up and adjusted the nut to allow the spool to spin more freely when pulling back on brake lever but this only helped slightly. After fighting it for awhile trying to fish, I finally pulled belt back off and found it drops like a dream. So next I lube up idler sheave thinking I've found the smoking gun. Wrong! Next suspect is the drive sheave but it spins with the same resistance as the working rigger. Hmmm! As am am contemplating my next move I notice the new belt is already getting pretty frayed on the upper edge. Upon fuurther inspection it appears that the main spool sheave is lower than either the idler or the drive sheave. It is not like this on the other working rigger. Until the belt broke this rigger also worked fine. I did not have time after the trip to tear into it any further but I plan on tackling it tonight. Any ideas on what might have caused this misalignment? Maybe brake pads are worn down to far?? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
