Re my Sears 3" belt

What did you use to make is smaller (to shrink?)
Is the back of the belt cloth or paper?

Dampness usually makes things stretch--
But too much moisture, and you tear easily, too!

Is there an adjustment on the kenmore 4179172000

The thing that you should now when taking on a repair on a "skyscraper" like thses, is that they are a monster to repair!! There is no "adjustment". The manufacturer (Whirlpool from the looks of your Model #) has a "fixed" tension on these units so they cannot be tampered with. You would need to purchase a repair manual that matches the unit you have to take you step-by-step. Plus, you can't just go by the size. The belt has to be ABSOLUTELY EXACT as the original. Did you get the belt from Sears or a third-party?

Sanding belt will not stay in line. Slips over to the inside.

There is an adjustment screw on the side of the sander that aligns the belt. Mine has a black plastic knob on it. If adjusting this does not help, remove the belt and check to see if it is making contact with the belt roller frame. The screw on mine was too long and I had to shorten it on a grinder. If you do this, take only a little at a time, a small adjustment will move the belt quite a bit.

93 FXR Rear tire rubs belt guard w/axle centered.

Try just bending the belt guard or removing it and fileing some material off the guard so it does not rub. You may also be able to remedy this by adding washers to the belt guard attach points.
