SOURCE: Replaced Mower Deck Drive Belt.
Yes, there is an idler arm with a pulley that presses either inward or outward against the belt to tension it. In some JD mowers, the arm is tensioned by pulling on a long metal rod that latches near the edge of the mower deck, but without the model number I can't be more precise about that. Just look for that extra pulley and arm it's mounted on -- you'll see a tension spring, and you should also see a way to pull the arm away from the spring to place it under tension. Good luck!

Hi After it's off make sure the belts aren't too tight. If they are then they won't disengage. They should be tight, but you should still be able to move then a little. Please check this article to get a detailed idea related to your issue:- http://www.bobshowto.com/landscape/mower-deck-disengage.htm
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
