I finally figured out a quick solution that worked for me. The black 3D-printed plastic pulley was slightly out of round, and ever so slightly off center, so I filed it down and manually re-shaped it. This helped, but the ultimate solution was to swap out the pulley for the 2nd orange one that is included in the slider kit. The orange one had much better tolerances; maybe it's a different kind of plastic.

Also, the pictures do not clearly explain whether the flange on the pulley should be mounted "down" or "up", and it's hard to tell with the pulley being the same color as the end base piece. I tried it both ways; it definitely is better mounted "down" so the timing belt doesn't slip off. Good luck.
Thanks for the feedback. We will update the assembly guide with a notice regarding how to place the ball bearing "envelope".

Regarding the orange and black pulley: we detected that the black one was printed with some layers off, so we rapidly added a good one (the orange) to the 3D plastic parts KITs. As, due to certain circumstances, we could not remove the "bad" one, we have sent two units.

With the "THANK YOU FOR YOUR ORDER" message we sent a warning about this problem ,but it looks it is not getting to the MAKERs as it should :-\ Sorry for that
