Well seems that way. So, my Deere 420 drops a cylinder. I go to grab my backup mower. I fire up the 16 and proceed to mount the deck to handle mowing till I sort my primary out. For some reason or another I can't get the belt to tighten enough. Seems like belt is too long even though it's what agco calls for. I've been over the deck mounting to no success. Tensioner moves great but seems to bottom out before tightening the belt. Anyone have a pic or some assistance here? Maybe a pulley is too small. I don't know.

I just came in for bed but I matched it to what I can see in the Agco parts book online. Belt I got is what they say. 92x1/2. It's been an aggravating weekend needless to say. It also seems the deck lifts crooked. Doesn't seem there are any different ways I can mount this thing. Only other thing I can guess is maybe one of the pulleys is too small. The idler were around 4.5" and the pto was around 6". Sorry, wish I had more haha. I gotta get up early so I will post some pics tomorrow. If you by chance have any pics, maybe I can notice some differences I'm not catching. Thanks
