The simplest way, is to take hold the belt, with the tension from the engine pully/clutch mechanism, then to follow the shape around the rest of the cutter mechanism. (You don't have to worry which direction the belt travels,)
Bearing in mind, the tensioner direction.
Then, you will see the correct route, very quickly:)
Hope you can manage, with that.

I have the same issue on my neighbors lawnmower.
Good thing is though, the manuals are available online.
Bad thing is the actual service manual, you can buy from their 800 number.
What I did, was merely copied pages from the parts manual, as well as the owners manual. Looks like my Craftsman, whereas you need to take the top off ( seat and back cover ) to get to the two drive belts.
It is not as bad as it looks, especially with the photos helping.
Word of advice, any pulley pley, replace all parts relevant, especially attaching nuts. If not, utilize a threadloocker. Ensure to torque to spec as well with torque wrench, the blades when doing those. Typically, people need to change these at the same time, as maintaining is usually not handled partially, it is usually not at all.
