Is this the right place to talk about this goddess of unbridled horsepower and feat of engineering prowess? With pics, hopefully.?.?...

Goddess of Unbridled, Yadda, Yadda, etc. . . . .        this is your first riding mower, isn't it?

I have had others but none so fair as she.

The new belt is the one from engine to transmission i dont have a clue why the deck belt jumps off. Does it have a belt guard missing?

It looks like everything is there and in the right spot. I am glad to hear that the new belt is not the one I am having problems with. I think I just need a little softer, more pliable belt. After some research here it sounds like the belts that twist back on themselves really need to be the right ones, like the simplicity made ones, or their high quality equivalent. Possibly a bad bearing in one of the mule drive pulleys as well. None of it is anything serious and I should have it running smooth shortly. If not, I'll be back on here with more info and looking for pointers. 

Thanks,
