thank you for your question.

i am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. i will be happy to assist you with deck belt. i have included a set of illustrated instructions (see below). these should step you through the process of replacing the belt on the mower deck. just click on the images to enlarge them. when you are installing the belt, make sure it is around the pulley and on the right side of the keeper. if the belt is not routed correctly, it could ruin the belt as soon as you turn the deck on.

i hope this is helpful. please let me know if you need further assistance.

thank you for using manage my life.
