On serpentine type belts do the ridge go up or down? On automotive applications the pullies has ridges and the ridges on the belt mesh with those on they pully.

Does the belt slip under stress of a normal cut?
If no, it’s OK.

I usually have about 1/2” deflection at the center of the top run.

Also, how much deflection should there be in the belt typically?  I have it set for about 1" of deflection at the center.
