You need to get underneath the mower.Look in the front on the bottom of the engine.You will see the engine pulley.On the side of the pulley you will see a bracket that keeps the belt from falling off the pulley.It is help on by two bolts.Take the bracket off.Now you will be able to take the belt off.
Reinstall the new belt and replace the bracket.

You need to post the 917.xxxxxx model number for some one to help you. There are about 10 different belts that fit different 42" Craftsman mowers.
You could also go to www3,sears.com and put in the same 917.xxxxxx model number and look up the part number. You do not want to buy a belt just by the size alone but must use one that is made for the machine application. The cheaper ones that you pick up in the local hardware store etc. like a 3Lxxx or 4Lxxx are made for low horsepower electric motors and will not last on your lawnmower.

The belt travels from eng. pulley directly to the transaxel pulley riding on the inside/center of the tractor side of the idler pulley. make sure the belt retainer is on the idler pulley.
