here is a link that shows the belts routing. looks as though you have two motion drive belts on this machine.

it is easier to remove the drive clutch pulley assembly for some, as the bottom belt can be hard to install. always install the belt around the stationary pulleys first and the idler pulleys last.

routing does not show how it is routed on the idler pulleys
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 10 months ago

idler pulleys go on the back side of the belt. if the pulley is flat, the flat side of belt goes against it. if the pulley has a groove, the groove part of the belt goes inside the pulley
