Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
You can download the User Manual here from ManageMyHome,
(Just copy, and paste the above into your address bar, then press the Enter key)
On this page where it has Go in the blue square, go below that, and click on -> View Manual.
This is a PDF file download. Took me about 12 seconds to see the first page, (I have Medium speed DSL )
Page 22, (Service and Adjustments), starts showing the routing of the belts.
The deck belt makes a T shape. It goes around the two mower blade pulleys, (Mandrel Pulley), and then around the engine shaft pulley. There is a tension pulley is on the left side, it's on the outside of the belt, and pushes IN on the belt. There is a tension pulley on the right side. It's on the outside of the belt, and pushes IN. (Pushes in. Pushes towards the center of the mower)
The Motion Drive belt goes around the rear end pulley, (Transaxle Pulley),
goes up the left side of the mower, to a pulley that is mounted solid to the deck, (Stationary Pulley), comes to the inside of that pulley, then goes to the outside of the Clutching Pulley, up around the engine shaft pulley.
From there, it comes back along the right side, to all the way to the Transaxle Pulley.
