Are you still needing a belt diagram? I see you accepted, but your response makes me think I haven't given you the right answer yet. I want to be sure you're taken care of.

OK, it turned out the diagram was correct, just one more thing, once I reinstall the belt, is the anything else that I should do to prevent it from slipping off again? And why do you think it slipped off in the first place?

Check all the pulleys (spindles and idlers) for easy rotation without binding to make sure you don't have a bearing that's seizing up.


Also check the pulley to be sure they are lined up properly. If you have a loose idler pulley, or a bent spindle, the belt will be thrown of because of the different angle.


Check for any springs on the idler arms that may have come loose or are weakened.


Check for proper belt tension and adjust the engagement linkage if necessary.


Hope this helps! Let me know...
