JD L111. When I first got this used 3 years back I quickly cut and severed the belt. I have been on the replacement but have noticed some cuts on the belt which I fear may not last much longer. I looked for obvious burrs or sharp edges of which I wasn't able to find any. I will try and notice if there is a place when engaging the blades that may cause a pinching problem between the guides and sheaves/pulleys.
My question: is there a way you can try and check for (Horiz) alignment of the belt? thanks for any advise or troubleshooting

I've had belts get cut and break when I was driving too fast and hit a series of bumps and the belt kind of bounced off the pulley and got pinched between the pulley edge and the little tabs/bars that help keep the belt from falling off. This happened when everything was adjusted correctly and all other parts were in good shape.
