Hello, I have a shop manual I will send you. It has detailed pictures too and can assist you much better than me trying to explain it. See Chapter 4.

I under stand what you sent. My question is How do I get the belt off and new belt on? Do I have to lower the PTO ? If so how do I keep the shaft from turning?Thank You
Expert:  Vince O. replied 2 years ago.
Once you remove the belt from the trans pulley's you should have enough slack to remove it. You need to disconnect the wire harness plug for the PTO and the stop bracket for it that keeps it from spinning and tearing out the wires

If not enough room to pull belt down past transmissions the the PTO needs loosened and moved down.An air tool would be best for that.You can also remove spark plug and fill the cylinder with rope to serve as a piston stop and try to unscrew it.
