Can anyone tell me how much tension should be on the belt that powers the two blades on a 36" deck? I looked at mine while it was running and it seems sloppy.

I got a screen shot of the deck belt system.

Can't make out any type of adjustment. May be just worn parts allowing tension to be less. Hope this helps.
