I don't have a diagram but it shouldn't be to hard. You will have to drop the deck. Then when installing the new belt remember to always place the inside of the belt (V) into the pulleys and the outside of the belt (flat side) up against the larger idler pulley. When you have the belt on properly it should be snug. If you have excessive play you need to try a different routing around the idler.
Good luck and let me know if this helps.

Are the blades turning? If they are not, this is normal. The PTO is an electro magnetic clutch that engages when you apply electricity via the PTO switch. When it is disengaged, the bearings and top portion of the clutch will turn because it is coupled to the engine. If the blades ARE turning then you have a bad clutch and will need to repair or replace it

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.
