Trouble Replacing My Bandsaw Blade

HELP... I inherited a nice CAV Brand bandsaw from my Father. I was making good use of it until the blade broke. I have been unable to get the new blade on. I got the length recommend in the owner's manual, but it seems about an inch too short. And the tension knob on top will only lower the wheel about 1/4 inch.. I know my Father replaced the blade a couple times, but I don't know his trick to get it on.

Sounds like you have the wrong blade. Measure the length of the original blade, and then measure the length of the new blade, also measure the length all the way around both wheels. This will tell you exactly the size needed.
