I hope this helps

Your belt deflection measurements sound about right.When I checked mine,I was moving it up AND down while applying pressure.I didn't move it in just one direction.

As for the belt's temp,I never thought about checking that.I'll have to do that the next time around.Thanks for the tip. Dave!!!
