Printer head drive belt backwards?

Odd one here. Cleaning my air assist fan for the first time on this machine, and I can’t tell if I’m crazy or if this drive belt was factory installed backwards. Shouldn’t the teeth of the belt grab the corresponding grooves in the motor pulley? This seems backwards. Thoughts? The machine has been operating fine for months, so clearly not a big issue, just seems strange.

No, it is correct. You have the “loop” on the wrong side. The head attaches to the left side of that plate. The belt runs back in the space between the bracket where it is secured, and the rollers on the right.

Yes they go in - but that’s cuz the rest of it should be closer to the wheels


Haha. Thank you. I’m going to leave this post up for humors sake. Thanks for being patient with me.
