The double sheave pulley on the center spindle is not correct. I would guess that someone either tried to convert this deck to fit on an XL series, or they got the wrong replacement pulley. Everything else looks correct, although it is not the best picture. The PTO belt from the tractor runs to the rear pulley assembly.

 

I don't have a good scan of the correct belt routing, but the picture I've attached is how it should be.

I bought this deck with a G16XL but it wasnt fitted so i think your guess is right.

I tried the routing in your pics but the belt catches a bracket between the 2 bottom right pulleys im wondering if the belt is short do you know the part number and length 

thanks for the info

the bottom middle pulley has no belt 

i wondered about a sweeper drive but i think  the 14056 drawing Classic Bolens pasted is correct 

thanks for the input though
