You might not have to drop the deck. Take a look at where the drive belt is mounted and remove only what has be be removed. At the front of the engine pulley there are probably two long bolts that have to be removed so the belt will come off and come on. Then when you put the new belt on put inside of belt (V) in to the pulley and flat part of belt up against any idler's. When on properly it should be snug.

SOURCE: mower deck
MAKE DARN SURE THE POWER IS OFF BEFORE YOU START THE PROCEEDURE BELOW! there should be 4 connection points for this machine. Clear out your garage ... get something comfortable to lay on and a small supply of proper supply wrenches and a tape measure. put the deck in UP position. put the blades perpendicular to the front to back axis of the machine. Measure from the floor to the blade tips on the outside. record the numbers. turn the blades 90 degrees. repeat. adjust the proper corner slowly (no big changes!) continue to measure until the numbers are equal.
Low on the left - change the adjustments on the left front and back. Low in the front - lift the front - both sides.
It took me several hours to do my mower when I got it new but I was pretty particular about it

SOURCE: replacing a MTD spindle assembly
Yes, most spindles come with non threaded holes. The metal is soft and you can just use regular bolts. Once you start them, they cut their own threads.

Testimonial: "Good, I was afraid I had the wrong part. Thanks for your help!"
The cable connects to the pin on the deck brake assembly and the other end connects to the pin that hangs downward from the upper idler assemble. Each end is held in place with a washer and cotter pin.
