If you locate your model number on the back of the tractor, usually under the seat, it will be 917.??????, go to and enter that number, you will be able to download an owners manual that has instructions as well as pictures showing the routing pattern.
That is the best way to do it. You can print out the page(s) you need and take it to the tractor to use for reference as you go along.

Why does the motor on my craftman riding mover stall when I let out clutch/brake?

Drive belt conditions? Wrong belt installation. Mower assembly will not turn by hand, so there are bearing and engine load problems? Clutch doesn't like the brake to be on?
Owner's manual trouble shooting? no manual

Can't push my self propelled lawn mower!

Remove the drive wheels and have a look at the gear teeth in them. If even slightly worn, they need replacing. If you run the mower with the wheels off, that end elevated with a block, see if the axle turns when you engage the drive. If it does, your transmission is fine. Wheels are a lot easier to change than a tranny.
