is the looks very important to you? If not, you could either weld the slot back up if you have the means to do this, or mix up some epoxy and fill in the groove some. Would get the lever to stop where it was designed to originally. Or just adjust the tensioner rod to correct length. Someone probably ground the groove deeper to make up for the belt getting old and slipping and getting just a little more adjustment.
