Cam belt tension KriKet gauge


Recommended Posts

I have just bought a Kriket one. I found some info on here that says 95 on the Burroughs gauge equals 55 on the Kriket. The problem is the Burroughs 95 = 95 lbs. the Kriket has a pounds scale, so why is the setting on the Kriket not 95 lbs? Maybe older ones were calibrated in units?

Same here. About 55 on the krikit. I use the frequency app as the main setting tool and the krikit as a backup to double check the tension.
