I just replaced the rear felt seal and the two front glides. I also lubricated the rollers while I had it apart. Now the drum is really hard to turn and stops on a dime. Should I put some silicone lubricant on the felt? It also squeaks a little.

Best do some backtracking and see if you routed the belt wrong or the drum got cockeyed - DO NOT lubricate the felt seal, and the rollers shouldn't be all gooed up as they'll attract lint - check condition of idler etc. Did you rivet the new pads to the front ?

You nailed it, although I figured it out on my own when I took it apart and found a pile of belt shavings under the idler wheel. I had improperly routed the belt OVER the little guide arm instead of UNDER it, so it was rubbing. The squeak which started this whole project went away with a little cleaning and lube to the idler wheel. Sounds great, now, although I probably took a few years off the life of the belt.
Thanks a bunch.
