Unless there is some other means of placing tension on the deck belt, I would say that the idler pulley does. If the idler pulley is on a pivot arm, there is a spring that typically is attached to the pivot arm, near the pulley, that attaches to a post or some other part of the deck, that creates the tension on the belt. Check the belt for proper tension.

You don't need to remove the any lever linkages but you will need to remove some of the pulleys.If you can give an exact model number of the tractor it would help.

There is an idler pulley that puts tension on the belt. You unhook the spring from the idler arm, put the new belt on (it will be loose, not tight) then hook the spring back onto the idler by pulling hard on the spring with a pair of visegrip or channellock pliers. Here's a parts diagram. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

I hear that on the service manual and the springs. Take a look at these decks if you talking about a deck belt and find yours. Then look for the spring routing visually.
If you need drive belt info look here:
I would like to know if this was enough info for you so that you were able to re-connect the spring.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
