Hello, this if my first post here!
I've been working on this mower, and having work done on this mower of the past couple of weeks. I had the hydro transmission off for an oil change, it was having some issues, which are hopefully resolved. When I got it put back in, I had to fight with trying to get the belt back on and routed correctly, thought I had it, took mower for test drive, eventually I noticed the belt was not around the engine pulley.
I tried everything I could think of to get it back on without having to remove the deck again, just had it straightend out and adjusted by a pro. So, I ended up loosening a sliding (adjustable) pulley, got the belt around it, and tightened it back up, but it moved. I know the belt tension is adjusted automatically by a spring and the belt seems to have adequate tension.
Did I make a mistake, should I pull the deck off and move the pulley back where it was?
