I need to know how to take deck loose to replace the belt.

To remove the deck from a riding mower you will need to lower the deck fully first. Then laying on the ground look above the deck and see at what points the deck is connected to the rest of the mower. Also at this point, remove the belt from the engine pulley. You should see some pins that can be removed to unhook the deck. For example on a Craftsman 42" there are two on the front of the deck, two above the deck connected to the lowering mechanism and one to guide the back up and down and one that connects the cable/linkage for engaging the deck. Then raise the lowering mechanism up out of the way and the deck should just slide out. With the deck removed take note of the routing, but usually there is a belt routing sticker on the deck.

Under the seat you will find the make and model number, record these and take to your local lawn mower repair parts store and they should have the appropriate replacement belt.

How to remove shaft assembly from mandrel housing of a husqvarna yth2348

It's much easier to do on the tractor.
1. Leave deck installed.
2. Jack tractor up and lower deck.
3. Run a heavy wire through the mandrel pulley's tie down hole.
4. Raise deck and tie wire around the deck.
5. Lower deck and remove top nut.
6. Raise deck and remove shaft.
You can modify this procedure to loose the nut if you don't have a jack and remove it once the deck is off. Retorque nut to 35 ft. lbs during install.
