could be a “set” in the belts or a loose motor. does it run like this:

note the nickel to the right of the saw blade. that’s how smoothly your saw should run.

also, check that the motor is bolted correctly in the motor mount. the motor hangs on a pin and it’s weight tensions the 3 drive belts. once the weight tensions the belts, there is a bolt that is screwed to the mount that holds the motor’s position. check that all this is properly tensioned and attached, being careful not to force the motor lower than gravity pulls it so as not to over tension the belts.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.
