    HOW TO: Adjust the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) on the MF GC 1705/10/15/20

    How about investigating the pulleys and see why it's falling off, these pulleys have guides on them that keep the belt on track and running true if your belt is falling off or breaking you have a problem somewhere

    G730 fill /vent plug?

    Thanks but no it's not I could not blow either way in or out that little paper disk had it completely blocked off, usually these type situations there's only pressure and if that's blocked off you could blow out axle seals.
