What happens when a timing belt goes slack?

Basic Failure. Timing belt failure comes in three flavors: stretching, worn teeth and snapping, generally in that order. All timing belts stretch, and most of that stretch occurs about 15 minutes after installation. A spring-loaded tensioner keeps the belt tight, but after a while the tensioner will run out of travel and the belt will go slack.

What causes a belt to slide over a pulley?

Note that every belt has a certain elasticity and therefore always results in elastic slip, whereby sliding slip should always be avoided. Sliding slip is the complete sliding of the belt over the entire pulley in the event of overload (complete relative motion between belt and pulley)!

What causes a drive belt to come off a riding mower?

The clip pins should be in place in the rear hangers, and the draft rod joining the mower’s front to the front axle must be connected. If all appears well, then the problem may be the belt, or other parts may be damaged. The drive belt may come off a riding mower because it is damaged or loose.

What to do if your snowblower drive belt slips?

What happens when the timing belt is worn out?

A worn out timing belt might also impact the engine’s fire rate. The timing belt is attached to pulleys that drive the crank and camshaft as we’ve indicated above. However, sometimes the belt will slip on the camshaft drive and cause one cylinder to open or close earlier than it should.
