I think with more tinkering you could fix the problem. More than likely the problem isn't bushing but the two pulleys are not in proper alignment with each other. That would put far more wear on the belt than a problem with the arbor.

Alignment can generally be done with a good straight edge.



Inspect both pulleys for any bends, warps, cracks or any other deformations. If in doubt replace them with the same size.
The arbor, being fixed will only have a bit of adjustment along the shaft. The motor might have a parallel or axial misalignment & should be easy to resolve.

Good luck & hope this helps.

I don't think that could have been illustrated any better. :thumbsup:
