   I recently purchases a 1980 something Gilson YT11E.  I need to see a diagram of the belt arrangement for the top of the deck.  I have had it apart 3 times and can't seem to get the arrangment correct.  Of course the tractor did NOT come with a manual..

Any help would be appreciated...

Most MTD built decks use the same belt routing or very close.

This is a deck off of a YT11 They also made a Rear discharge deck but I haven't seen one of those in a long time.the Lawn Boy LT11 uses the same deck and you can still get manuals for it from Toro.

 

Best thing to do is take the deck off and snap a couple pics of it and post them here.

Thank you so much.  I will take off the deck and post some pictures.  If I post them, do you think you could figure out the belt pattern?

Yes we're a pretty smart bunch when it comes to figuring stuff out like that.
