    LOL! Sorry! I was refering to the green colored peg (on top) that is sticking out that acts as a belt guide as the belt rides under. The one right in the foreground in picture 2. As I look at it, is that all one piece for your drive control - when you let out the handles?

    Mine comes off if grass is built up under that green pivot or the bolts when I back it off the trailer. It's a real beeach to get back on too.
    Tire psi may be a factor under normal circumstances like what was posted.
    Also, when you get the plate make sure everything is lined up good.
    Those plates take abuse from bumping into stuff on turns and such.

    The belt kept coming off the motor pulley on my Walker. I got some old used belt material from a digging machine( 1/2" thick and 12" wide) and cut a piece to mount along side the pulley....never came off again. The belt material won't tear up your drive belt and with a little engineering ro make a bracket it could replace that cover you lost.
