Help with setting up motors.
As soon as I try to update the motor settings it doesn't start in the middle hot it goes to the far right corner. Also when I tell it to mesh it starts at about 100mm in from the front of the bed. May I did something wrong but before updating the speed it worked perfect. Is there somewhere I can read so I understand about the motors setup.
Here is the Config file.

I have been messing around with the motor setting. When I change this line the beg starts about 100mm in from the front and about 30mm from the left. M92 X157.64 Y157.64 Z5120 E301.54 when meshing the bed. Also if I do Z home it goes to the far right corner not the middle of the bed.
Just from messing around with it this works perfect so far.
M92 X90.64 Y90.64 Z5120 E456 ; Set steps per mm
@saltypetz generally steps/mm for motion axis should be calculated, not determined by experiment.
Prusa has a good calculator:
Is there more information that I can read so I have a better understanding what all the numbers are for.
I went on the calculator but I want to have better understanding of all the settings. I want to understand what they all do. If there is a link to something I can read can you please post the link.
Thank you, everyone for the help.

Could the belt be the problem making it go across the bed. I am looking for information on it now.
Here is the link to the belt. https://tevo3dprinterstore.com/products/10meter-gt2-6mm-open-timing-belt
