I've just replaced the belt on my GT1554 and am having a problem

Customer Question

I've just replaced the belt on my GT1554 and am having a problem reinstalling the deck. When I hook the front of the deck on the bar, I can't get the holes to line up in the rear.
Can you advise me?

Make sure your deck lift lever is lowered all the way. You may also have to set the deck on some short blocks to get the deck higher. make sure you put the belt on the Pto last or it will pull on the deck.
