What to do with this

Arbor is off 1/8 to the dangerous side. Also , belt adjustment setup needs alittle fine tuning. I've seen the belt upgrade links, just wondering if any of you have seen this before. Is it worth even repairing if possible or just pick up a new saw? Thanks

Take the blade off and turn the saw upside down. Find the bolts that hold the arbor mechanism on and loosen them. You should then be able to adjust the arbor back to where it belongs. You could then put 10" to 12" board on the arbor so you use it as a guide to make it parallel with the coverplate hole. Once parallel the saw should be fixed. I think the type of belts you have are fine. If they are in good condition and properly adjusted you shouldn't have any slippage.

Thank you Mr. Neul. You are my favorite person of the day.
I'd tried that before, but hadn't dissassembled it off the stand.
The blade is straight now. Should do something with the belt adjusting and tensioning system while I have it dissassembled.
As you can see in this picture, the belt/motor is being tensioned with a bungee cord.
I'm not sure I understand how the belt system worked originally, as the belt tension changes with blade hieght.

Thanks to whomever sent me the Pm. Stated that the motor weight was the source of the tensioning system. This was what I was told by a friend, but nice to hear it here. I cannot send a p.m to thank the person for some reason. Thank You
