MAINTENANCE NOTICE: The site will be down for extended maintenance on Sunday, October 2, 2016, between 12 Noon and 6 PM Eastern. We apologize for any inconvenience!
I would add: Make sure the pivot plate that the motor mounts to still has a little free play at both top and bottom of the full blade height range. On mine, the curved slot was cut too deep on the top, which meant that the motor mount bolts bottomed out at the full up position using the manual instructions. This will cause strain on the belt as well as greatly increase the vibration at full up setting. I had to slide the motor in about 1/4" to allow a little slack, so the spring could do its job.
Congrats on the new saw!! Hope you are as happy with it as I have been with mine (2+ years and a lot of sawdust later).
