Thank you for the donation.
I am not very clear what you meant by the pulley keep getting misaligned.
Do you mean the belt slips put when you turn the crankshaft?
The belt should be rather fitting and after the belt is seated all round before adjustment, try to pull the belt around the pulleys, letting it slip so that it can self seat correctly before you do the adjustment.
If the adjustment is at the maximum, there is a possibility the belt is not of the correct size.
On the other hand if the crank pulley is not turning in a straight line and seem to be wavy, the harmonic balancer is bad and the crank pulley has to be replaced.
A bad crank pulley would cause slipping noises when engine is started.
