Question about Craftsman 20 Hp 42" Deck Lawn Tractor
No, the deck will have to be removed. You will also need to remove the stacked pulleys from the crankshaft of the engine. There are 2 idler pulleys in the middle of the belt path that will also need to be loosened in order to get the belt around them. You will need to put the new belt around the rear (transmission) pulley first, then work your way forward. Make sure to get the belt installed completely against the pulleys and not around the belt guides, as this will destroy a new belt very quickly. The 2 middle pulleys will be spring loaded. Mount the belt around them, then take the belt to the front. It may be helpful to engage the parking brake, as this will hold the tension off of the middle pulleys while you put the belt on the upper pulley of the front pulley stack. Reinstall the front stacked pulleys and release the parking brake. Carefully inspect the entire belt path. The belt should be tight, but movable. It should also not be touching anything except the pulleys. If all looks well, fire it up and test drive. If that goes well, reinstall the deck. The whole job should take an hour or two.

It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.
