Coverstar cover running crooked

Tried and tried adjusting the ropes, but just can't get the cover to run square. The motor side will run all the way closed and out all the way open to the stops on either end. The opposite side stops short by about 4 inches at both the open and close position.

I am new to this pool, no idea the maintenance that has been performed on it. It has the older style white/green ropes. Checked the track and roll up tube for square, and that looks good. Seems there is a new style of black rope out there for replacement parts.

Before I drop $$ into new ropes, is there something I am missing?

Boy, I don't know Johnny, never having experience with these things.

Hopefully someone will have some suggestions, but I wanted to say welcome aboard. Good luck on your issue, and I hope you enjoy the forum.

Pull the cover completely closed to where the sliders are touching the end pulleys on the track. Once you have that done you can adjust the ropes. If the cover does not open evenly I would say the tracks are out of square. The only way to know for sure is to measure length, width, and an x of the system
