I will 3rd what Brad said. I had/have a lathe similar to this in design, with a dead center on the tailstock, and a similar open pulley to a motor behind it. I put wax, or sometimes oil on the tail stock, and make sure not to tighten down too hard. After that, belt tension, and if that doesn’t seem to work, a new belt. Segmented or cogged.
