Question about Garden
Changed end of last season broke first mow of the year. Also something is breaking blades on fan.
The bearings may be bad and freezing up, this will cause the belt to smoke and tear up. Does it smell like burning rubber ?? If not then you have a pulley out of line and or a pulley that's cracked or broken. Also check and make sure the deck pins are all in place and the locks are down on the quick release decks.
Hope this helps, plese post solved on fixya.com.So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

This link will send you to the illustrated parts list on the john deere site. It shows the belt routing in the part diagram. Hope this solves your headache.

SOURCE: John Deere Lt 166 ride on mower
jd lt 166 has 5 different decks
3 of which have the same belt routing
1st the belt needs to be adjusted correctly to stop it from "slacking off"
then on most decks the belt is routed in between the 2 small idler pulleys and then to the engine pulley
so let me know the deck i.e. 36", 42 ", 46", 48"
different belt sizes also
