I have a low hour(17 hrs) cub cadet 7254 tractor with a model #291 60" mower deck. The mower deck has broken two(2) idler pulley tension springs and constantly throws the belt off the deck. I cannot even get 10 minutes of mowing in before either the belt throws or it breaks the spring. Is there an engineered solution for this as my research show that this is a prevalent issue. Some mention was made of a upgrade to the belt tension system via the addition of a 2nd idler pulley. What are the part numbers for the kit ? Where can I obtain this kit ? Is it available for my mower deck? If not what would be a solution to my issues.

thank you,
