You are going to have to remove the deck completely to do this. Once removed...remove the metal covers on both sides and install the belt. Its a bit of a process and one you shouldn't have to do often. www.nnyparts.com

Belt is to long, is there a deck adjustment?


Jim, Double check to make sure you have correct belt for the deck and are installing it in the correct configuration as per manual or drawing on deck. Very few lawn tractors have deck belt adjustment, most do not, most deck belts have a spring loaded tensioner to take up the slack.
This could be some of your problem, the tensioner/idler pulley sometimes seize up and must be lubed up till they move freely, or your belt could be loose. Look in your manual or try google searching your make, model #, deck belt adjustment.

Diagram of deck belt placement on John deere lx 277


Hi Vicki,

1. The yellow arm sticking up that has two notches in it is supposed to have a spring attached to it. That is what causes the tension. It doesn't look like a spring is attached in the video.

try this link-it will take you to the owners manual and a picture of the belt routing. copy and paste the link into your browser

I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting


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.
