I found it. It is a 1987. I am going to try to walk you through the belt diagram. I am going to tell you how it is routed if you were laying in front of the tractor on your belly and looking towards the front of the tractor. The belt is going to go around the main engine pulley. The left side of the belt is going to go back towards the 2 idler pulleys. It will go towards the inside of the front one and then around the outside of the rear one. It will then go back to the top of the pulley on the transmission and go down around it and then come up and over the idler pulley. Both of the last pulleys that I referenced are the ones that are vertical. After the belt comes off of the vertical idler it goes back up to the engine pulley. Clear as mud?
