Have a John Deere LA125 and I am trying to replace the deck belt. I have the correct belt according to my owner's manual GX20072 for a 42" deck. My question is what is the trick to getting this thing on? I have tried everything I know but can't seem to get it on. I have lowered the deck to the lowest position and removed the deck completely. I have the belt weaved correctly based on pictures. Once I put the deck back under the mower to attach it I can either attach the deck correctly but not get the belt around the main drive pulley or I can get the blet on but not get the deck attached properly. I have read the owners manual and something just isn't hitting me. What is the trick to get the new belt on? Thanks for any advice.
