Using the Burroughs/Krikit comparison data I found either on this forum or perhaps a Lotus forum for the Gates T104 and also the recommended Burroughs values for the T104RB I calculated an approx 55% difference between the two gauges (cold) and installed my blue belt last week at 47 lbs cold. Belt deflections are in accordance with a Judson Manning post from 2006
So far so good but I’ll be keeping my eye on it.

Gates T104
Burroughs Gauge 90-95# cold 120-125# hot
Krikit 50-52# cold 60-69# hot

Gate T104RB
Burroughs Gauge 82-84# cold 112-114# hot
Krikit 45-47# cold 56-62# hot
