Motor Placement

I purchased an 8x12 C&P. How do I place the motor so it moves the belt and keeps the belt from coming off? My press does not have a mount.

I’m not sure how others have done this. When we moved and re-assembled my presses last year, we replaced the bases that were under the feet. We used 2 x 6’s, and made sure that they extended beyond the back of the rear feet by a couple of feet.Then using 3/4 inch finished plywood we secured this to the 2 x 6’s and then mounted the motor to that. It’s been holding steady.
