I'd take the belt off and check all the pulley bearings to make sure none are going bad. That is usually what makes belts walk in my experience. That or something misaligned, but misalignment usually throws the belt immediately. Good luck, man!

Get it on right then watch while it is running to see if there is any spots that move a bit. Try revving it up too...

Loosen the belt and see if there is any freeplay in the pulley...
