I just purchased the General 50-185 left tilt TS and am at the point
in the setup where I can now cut wood. I've adjusted, as best as I
could, the alignment of the motor pulley and arbor pulley. But when
running, I am feeling quite a bit of vibration. I can see the motor
bouncing/vibrating and the belt wobbling/vibrating which is the source
of the vibration in the saw. I can't figure out what could be causing
the motor and belt to be doing this. I'm considering installing a link
Any ideas on how I might reduce the vibration. Might the link belt
make a significant improvement?

Definitely. In my experience, contractor's saws benefit greatly from
link belts. The stock belt may also soften a bit on it's own with
some use as well, but if it were mine I'd buy a link bent for it.
I have a Delta CS and it drove me crazy with vibration. I was too cheap
to buy both the machined pulleys and a link belt. I decided to try a
link belt first, thinking I could always buy the pulleys if the belt
didn't work out. Well it worked out great and the problem was solved.
You won't regret it, even if it should turn out not to be the total
cure. Good luck ...
