It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

"belt position not sure is correct," from your description above
The first thing to do would be make sure belt position is correct, connected and tight.
This system is quite simple, the belt goes in the pulley on the engine shaft and the pulley on the transaxle only, nothing else. Using a short piece of rope or anything else readily available, temporarily tie down the safety bail (handle) and engage the drive handle. Now check your belt, it should be fairly tight and you should not be able to turn the transaxle pulley without considerable effort, if it is easy to turn, replace the belt. Now release the safety bail (handle)
If the drive belt seems to be working okay as above, remove the front wheels and inspect the gear teeth in them. If the outer half of the teeth are worn down more than 1/2 the original size as compared to the inner half, replace the wheels.
While you have the wheels off, if you have a couple of blocks of wood or similar items, set one under each corner of the front of the main frame outside the arch of the blade and start the engine, engage the drive and observe the pinion gears, they should both be turning. If they are not, then you have a bad transaxle and are going to have to either replace it , use it strictly as a push mower, or replace the mower.
