well just ordered 2 pulleys and a idler tension spring from bolensparts on epay. hope to have everything back and operational this weekend when the parts get here. i might just have to rig up one of the other decks i have and mow the really long grass.

well...got the pulleys today and got everything installed. one question though. does the raised part of the hub on the pulley go down or up? i put it down as it made more sense to raise the pulley from the mounting surface. was i correct on that?

According to the parts manual, the extended part of the idler pulley goes down, and the loose spacers go on the top side of the idlers.

 

So, it appears you have the idlers installed correctly.
