Yep, those mule drive pulleys can cut grooves into the axles.

It might be the picture but... is that belt upside down? Hard to see on my screen.
And my other idea is this the right length belt? If it was to long, that would bring the pulleys closer to the front...

I looked at the127 and a p.o. had actually milled or ground a flat across that shaft to keep the belt from hitting is my guess

Can you measure it or find the numbers ? And then we can use CCS and see if it's the right one?

The mule drive pulley(s) would typically only contact the axle when mowing uneven terrain when the axle pivots down onto the pulley(s). If you only mow a nice flat lawn, the pulleys should never contact the axle.

Here are some photos from the tiller manuals showing under side views of various mule drives:

Just wondering if you put the clutch on with the bearing pushed back if it releases correctly?
I fear the center button may bottom out on the end of the crankshaft.

I don't know yet,I'm waiting for the wear button. I did use a piece of plastic just so I could spin it by hand and it seemed to release ok. Great point though,I'm gonna bring it back flush soon as I figure this belt thing out
