mower deck belt adjustment??

I just got a 1970 cub cadet 106 w/42" mower deck. It keeps throwing the belt off. I have replaced the belt with a longer one (82) (I still have to remove the adjusting bolt completely it get the belt on). Any suggestions?

you might check the bearing rollers that each blade has,,,this could very well throw the belt

Id first suspect the routing of the belt...make sure you're routing it right. Also check for bad bearings in all pieces, and look for worn or bent pulleys.
