My research found that outboard can cause slip and extra wear due to one plate moving out, and the other moving in. The belt at some point is misaligned. I had to completely rebuild my jack shaft to make room, but I think it was worth it. I don't know if it will make a difference, it still may slip.
I will be watching it closely. It is only rated at 18hp. I will not blame Comet if it does.
27 second TY video that shows my belt moving.

I know anyone running a back plate has no choice, and there are allot of those out there. But that doesn't make it correct. Comet instructions clearly show inboard install only, that was my final clue.
