Question about Garden
The chain drive on my greenfield mower is very slack. how do i tension it?
Take chain off -- lay on floor --pull taught end to end push together --if it flexes more that one quarter of a inch --chain is worn --replace chain--also see how deep chain sits on sproket--- if sits too deep sprokets are wore and need replacing

SOURCE: Replaced Mower Deck Drive Belt.
Yes, there is an idler arm with a pulley that presses either inward or outward against the belt to tension it. In some JD mowers, the arm is tensioned by pulling on a long metal rod that latches near the edge of the mower deck, but without the model number I can't be more precise about that. Just look for that extra pulley and arm it's mounted on -- you'll see a tension spring, and you should also see a way to pull the arm away from the spring to place it under tension. Good luck!

Go to this website, upper right hand corner and do a parts look up.
Search for your model and that good stuff they ask of you and then
choose mower housing should be there, browse the site it's really cool
and has a lot of info.
I did a sample search for generic riding mower deck and found great diagram of belt routing. Give it a try you will find same results Good Luck! Don't forget the thumbs!
