Many had gear boxes over each spindle and had a shaft between them and then a pulley off the side from engine. Kinda weird tensioner and didn't really work that great. Course all this depends on what years! Pix here of my late model, kinda hard to see the drive belt tho.

Some of the S series had the decks that way. I think the blades had to be timed so they didn't hit.
