Position the belt on the top of the lens carriage as shown in picture 4b.
With your thumb positioned as shown in picture XX, press the lens carriage to the rear of the machine. Once the front rollers clear the front of the X-axis assembly, you can lower the lens carriage in to the x-axis assembly.
Once the lens carriage is in place, ensure that he belt clamp is in place around the lens assembly.
Move the lens carriage left and right a few times to ensure proper alignment and to ensure that the belt clamp assembly is not binding on the x-axis assembly.
