Turning

Subject:
Jet 1221vs clicking

Jack Guzman from Maine
I have been using this 1221vs lathe for 5 years or so. I added an extension bed when I bought it and use it for chair legs. For quite awhile now I have noticed a light clicking from the drive end. It doesn't go away at high speed.When turning by hand it clicks once every revolution. The sound appears to be coming from the motor drive pulley. I looked over the belt and all pulleys. Checked the set screws for tightness. If I tap the motor pulley towards the motor it goes away until it starts and runs for a short while then it is back. Does anyone have any ideas what I should look for?
