So yesterday I raised my blade up all the way and went to turn my Grizzlt G1022 table saw on to do a nickel test and slight smoke started to come out of the cabinet and the arbor wouldn’t spin.

Come to find out when I raised the blade up all the way (roughly 3 1/8th depth of cut) the link belt would get pinched between the underside of the TS top and the pulley.

What can I do to resolve this? Reposition the motor a little lower on the motor support so there is a slightly higher angle?

In order for the link belt to not get pinched I have to sacrafice about a 1/4 inch of cut depth (maybe a little less)

Solutions?

The green link belts are wider than red link belts and ride higher on the pulley. So you probably need a red belt. Check width and everything before buying but that’s probably it.

No. The HF is 1/2” (I think) and you probably need a 3/8” (measure your old belt if you have it). I just checked on Amazon and they have 3/8” green belts so ignore my remark about color.
