Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

Do you have the full model number for the tractor and the blower? There should be belt guides to keep the drive belt in place, at each pulley. Do you have the belt guides and are they close enough to the pulleys to keep the belt from slipping out??

Either find a belt guide, or make one, and that should keep belt on.
