There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

This is too late, but for the next person: There is an extension spring around the cable attached to the blade engage/disengage lever.
On my tractor one end of the spring had the hook broken off or it. Because it is around the cable it is still in place but doesn't stretch when you engage the blade (so can't pull the pulley out and slacken the belt when you disengage).
The replacement is a few dollars and can be bought on ebay or Amazon.
