Sounds like u think someone has moved a pulley.
If not, u already know that the back of the v-belt, or flat side runs against flat pulley, most of the time just taking up slack.
The belt probably pulls over the top of the pulley with the back side of the belt rolling on it. Your drive and blade pulleys will keep it in line.
Where's the belt tinsion come from? Spring idler or slide adjustment?
Some times it takes some head scratching but u can figure this out.

Husqvarna yth20k46 tractor sputters when blade is first engaged, then evens out?

When you put a load on the engine the governor opens the throttle plate on the carb further to allow more fuel. Sometimes it can take a second for the engine to catch up when this happens. As long as the tractor runs fine once it catches back up I wouldn't worry about it.

Just put a brand new B-belt on husqvarna yth20k46 and I've double checked for correct belt routing. Everything is correct and transmission still won't engage.

Has the transmission been put into bypass ( push mode )? there will be a lever from the box to engage/dissengage the unit.If this is ok check the splines on the transmmision pulley they may have stripped.

The drive belt on my husqvarna yth20k46 is off at the pulley above the transmission. How do I get it back on? Do I have to remove the nut at the transmission shaft?

I would remove the nut and pulley. Get belt top of pulley. Start the edge of belt in broove on pully and run it around. You get easyer belt in pulley and install it. May have pull little against spring.

Husqvarna yth20k46 - When turning transmission does not work

I only had my mower 3 months and that problem started. I was told to change the drive belt, It got worse. Now the transmission will only drive the mower for about 15 min and will come to a complete stop. I have to let it sit about 30 min before the drive will work again. No solution yet but I'm looking at replacing the "sealed" drive assy. I do have a very healthy yard of St Augustine which is tough. I can mow a thinner yard a little longer.n
