Does it have the two square head lights or is the older style. There is a mule box under the front on the kind with the two square lights that you need to loosen up

Ok you have a 78 or 79, there is a belt gaurd around the drive pulley you have to take off. The loosen the tensioner on the right side. Push down the clutch and pull it off

Check out the link in my sig, it has some instructions about rear end removal and belts. You do not have to remove the rear like my thread is about, but you can see the pics of what you need to remove for the belt.

Your belt may require a different one than I used, I have a single Tecumseh engine.

The drive belt for the 18/6 model 917.25191 is listed as 2692R which is a 5/8" x 84" v-belt.
