I adjusted the belts on my machine yesterday and set it up to get engine rpm and impeller rpm. I looked at the engine pulley and impeller pulley while the engine was running based upon your observations in your other thread. At 3,900 rpm and with the auger clutch engaged (tied down) both the pulleys and the belts ran straight as a die, no wobble at all. So there is something to fix on your machine. I also checked the impeller rotation in the housing at 1170 rpm and it was also smooth with no runout (wobble).
You may have a bent impeller pulley, or bent impeller shaft (also may cause impeller wobble and gearbox wobble up/down and or sideways).
