Drive belt removal is a major pain on every riding mower I've ever seen.
need to take mower deck off , then look to see what is in the way of taking the drive belt off ...
tensioners, springs etc. they need to be taken off.
list every step you take in taking things off and keep the parts in seperate trays if necessary.
there is probably a protection plate or two to take off as well.
the springs are the biggest pain... you have to check what position various levers need to be in to have the least amount of tension on the springs when you take them off. [be careful]

for the mower deck belt set up ... drawing.
you can logically work out how it must go to work
looking for tensioners that engage the blades and rollers just to keep the belt out of the way of things. Make your own drawings of the wheels and how the belt could go ... the one that fits the the belt with the tensioners working ... is the right one.

I have a Sears MTS 5500 tractor, 24 hp, 48" mower, bought new 2008 but used very little; only 127 hours on it. Soon after starting, tractor emits a heavy white smoke. Tried changing the oil, no help. The engine is B & S Extended Live Series, twin cylinders, total displacement .725 liters. Any ideas of what is causing this?
