I recently replaced the tensioner bearings.  I had them pressed in by a local shop.  A couple of weeks later, I discovered that the pulley ring that contacts the belt had 'walked off the bearings', moving in toward the engine so that only half of the belt was still on it.

I called Delta and was told that he had heard of this before and recommends the use of Loctite 680 when installing the bearings.

a friend of mine expressed amazement that there is no mechanical retension of the bearings.

Am I missing something here?
