Hello Bill,

I would like to assist you with your mandrel pulley question. A small amount of play is normal, if the tolerances were too tight, it would be extremely difficult to assemble these parts in certain circumstances. The correct torque of the nut is paramount, you were correct to assume this. 65-75 ft lbs. is the correct torque specification. This will prevent excessive movement within the assembly.

Please let me know if you would like any further assistance.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the belt coming off the pulley. Usually when the belt comes off it is because the keeper for the pulley is too far away from the pulley. If it is too far away, the belt will fall off the pulley. I posted an image below that shows the belt keeper. Click on the image to enlarge it. To adjust the keeper, you need to install the belt first. Then use long pliers or a crescent wrench to bend the keeper closer to the pulley. You need to have it about 1/8 to 1/4 away from the pulley. Once you have both sides adjusted check the operation.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
