I HAVE THE TENSIONER LOOSE ALL THE WAY AND IF I PUT THE BELT ON FIRST THE DECK DONT LINE UP AND IF I PUT THE DECK ON FIRST I CANT GET THE BELT ON

Expert:  J.R. replied 8 years ago.
Get the deck completely hooked up with all of the brackets connected. Put the belt on all of the pulleys except the drive pulley on the deck. Try to get the belt started on the deck pulley and then spin the pulley to get it on the rest of the way and then tighten the adjuster. If the belt does not come close to going on you may want to check the belt. You may have gotten the wrong belt. I have even seen them stamped with the wrong part number before.

See attached links. The belt number you have does not appear to be the correct belt. You will need to see what serial number your tractor is to get the correct belt. It will be one of these 2 depending on the serial number of your tractor.

The belt you need should be the one shown in the second link. Your serial number is XXXXX and this belt fits serial numbers 259000 and up.
