Alan,Its about 5 years ago since I fitted my kit and i cant really remember now, but i suspect that is why I fitted the inner flange . Can you can go to my profile and send me an email. I might be able to help you if you are stuck. You dont show an email address on yours.

Attached photos show that I've added an extra flange for the inside. With the casing off the belt stays where it should and I'll give it a longer run when we get a dry day.

Well after all that hassle installing the Hayward belt drive kit I've taken it off and put the chain drive back on!!!
The reason is simple, running it dry gave me problems with the clutch in traffic e.g. drive/slip/drive when releasing the clutch and eventually dragging. That was with getting it into neutral as often as I could, so I've given up on it.  I couldn't put oil in the case with the belt drive at that point since the clutch adaptor oil control spiral was the wrong hand. *problem*  *work*
