Help Need to install belt on Craftsman LT 1000

I have a Craftsman LT 1000, Model 917.271652 17 I/C. The top belt has come off and I have no clue how to remount it. The owner has no idea where the manual is and he is out of town. I am supposed to have his job done today! It starts and drives well. I have spent hours looking for a manual online with a diagram and got nowhere. Help, please!

Thanks,

Rick

Here is a link to the manual. I believe there are belt routing diagrams in it.

Somebody once said, not me, that when putting a tight belt on, the easiest place to squeeze it on is on the larger pulley end. That is, if you can get to the larger pulley end.
