when we had "training" on adjusting timing belts for optical readers they gave us a little routine to follow. When you hold the drive pulley and rotate the driven pulley back and forth the top section of the belt will tighten and slacken. Measure the vertical height the belt travels while doing this and it should be no more than 1/32". Too tight and the belt wears prematurely as well as bushings. More slack and you lose the precision. After your final adjustment did it work out to be about this amount of slack? May be slightly different for this type setup.
