Follow these steps in sequence and instructions exactly. You may need to revisit it 2-3 times to get it right the first time (sovereign manual).

I don't know how to do it, but maybe somebody can post page #20 of the same manual. There is some info that would be helpful in the adjustment.

I've found that it is a little more forgiving regarding gear grinding with the idler pulley belt stop set a little further from the axle. As much as 9.5". It helps to stop the belt/transmission.
