I do not see your answer. Am I doing something wrong?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 7 months ago.

Be sure the end covers are in place, and any belt guides are close enough to the pulleys to keep belt from coming out. Belt guides need to be close enough to the pulleys , that the belt can't be removed until guides are loosened. If the idler and the center pulley does not have guides, make guides ath will bolt to the center bolt/nut and come out and lip over the pulley to keep belt on. Just needs to a strap of metal, with a 90 degree angle bent on it and a hole drilled for the bolt. These do have lots of complaints, and adding belt guides will help.
