A loss of 2psi would indicate something along the lines of belt slip. Especially in the wet winter.

Is it weather/rain related?

The first indication might be black dust on the nosedrive of the SC, unless it just started.

How'* the belt tension based on the tension marks on the tensioner assembly? Does it have a 3.5" idler, or the stock 3"?
