    I have 12 Boss - Paxton 3.6 pulley Every once in a while the belt rides over the 3.6 pulley towards the engine... There is no lip the pulley to stop this. Has anyone else had trouble like this? I have the belt that came with the paxton installed and the idler in the correct position(per instructions).

    Get a shorter belt, my belt flipped on me when I pullied it down from the stock to a 3.6 pulley or you can just change the idler position.

    I've had it happen on my 3.33 pulley so i moved the idler pulley over to the last hole. actually the belt popped off but i have seen it slip over like you're talking about too.

    What length belt would be best for a paxton with 3.6 pulley?

    try moving the idler over one spot. chances are you need to tighten up the system.
