Guys,
Every time I get on an angle with my mower, she throws the belt. I tightened up the two links on the front of the deck, but this didn't seem to help. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Sometimes the idler pulley pivot point gets worn enough to allow the pulley to move out of alignment when tension is applied to the belt. This often shows from where the back side of the belt has been riding in the flat bottom pulley. If it rides close to one edge any small quirk like the incline you are mowing on can be just enough to make the belt jump. While the deck is off try moving the pivot arm that the black plastic idler is attached to and see how much up /down movement there is.
