Question about Garden
This is not a job for a beginner. I recommend you have the local repair shop do it.
If you must do it yourself, then here's how to do it.
Start by removing the mowing deck. Set it aside. Make sure to mark where all the hardware goes. Remove the center bolt from the from pulley stack. You will need an extension socket and probably an air powered impact gun. This will allow the pulley to lower enough to remove the front part of the belt. If the pulley is stuck, use a backside pulley puller to remove the stack pulley. Any other kind of puller will damage the stack pulley. Next, remove the lower steering gear and raise the steering comuln up about 4 inches. The gear is held on with a circlip. The tension pulleys will each need to be loosened to get the belt of and back on past the retainers. Completely remove the belt from the rear pully (transmission). Install in reverse order. The entire job should take about 1.5 hours.
Take pictures or draw diagrams before you start. It is helpful when reassembling.
