Can't figure out how to install main drive belt on riding mower.

The main drive belt broke on my mower and I am not certain how to install the new belt. It appears that to route it properly that I will have to remove some parts as the belt goes around them. Help!

    In order to help, we need to know what kind of mower and MOST importantly, what is the model #, usually located under the seat.

Belt broke on riding mower and I don't know how how it goes back on

Go to Sears and take a look at how the belt is routed. After you get it figured out take a sharpie and mark your deck so you don't have the same problem again. When you buy a new mower mark it before you have to replace the belt.

How do i replace the hydro belt on the swisher zt2660? my belt broke after 35 hours. when i put the new belt back on it was loose and i can't figure out what needs to be tightened. i also find it very...

A mower with 35 hours should still be under warranty, and a belt shouldn't break at 35 hours unless you ran over something that got caught in the belt. I would take this unit back to the dealer - it is their responsibility to repair or replace your mower.
Here is my advice on how to change a main hydro belt. To get enough room to work, jack up the back of the mower (put blocks in front of the front wheels first) then make sure the back end stays up with jackstands under the chassis, or use bricks or blocks under the rear wheels. No matter what, you'll be laying on your back working in a cramped space. So don't tackle it if it's the dealer's responsibility.
If you've replaced the belt but can't get it tight, check that the idler arm spring is hooked up properly so the idler pulley presses in on the belt to tension it.

Cahnging drive belt on mower

dont understand your question ... get the belt ... it was designed to fit ... there are probably at least three pulleys. put the belt around the motor pulley and the trans pulley then figure out how the clutch or tensioner pulley interact with it.
