4. For multiple drive, use as many V Belts required for better service life and low maintenance cost. For best results one should use matching set belts. The whole set should be replaced if one belt fails. Belts should not be lubricated.

6. Pulley should be checked whether it is manufactured as per international standards or not, and should also be checked for worn out sheaves. Bearings should also be checked for lubrication.

7. Do not pry or roll v belts into the pulley grooves, if done so, the belts get damaged internally as a result of which belt life is affected. Use drive take-up and installation allowances to enable the belts easily mounted on the pulleys.
