Not to be insulting, but have you moved BOTH thrust bearings back; upper and lower? You mention one bearing, so I just thought I’d throw it out. If the lower is too far forward it could be pushing the blade off.

I second Brad’s suggestion; try an old blade and make sure the problem isn’t with the new blade. If the welded ends were cut at angles, you’ve got a cone instead of a band, and I can’t imagine that would work well.
