I have a model 254680 craftsman lawn tractor and I can't fifure out how to get the mower deck belt on. I bought a new craftsman belt from sears according to the parts cooling. For some reason there is a ton of slack in the belt and I have no idea as to why.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

I got this tractor for free, spent a night and a twelve pack rewiring it and checking everything plus adding a battery. Thing fired right up andi started mowing the next day. And I mowed right over the hundred foot fish tape my plumber left in the yard. Blew the belt and now I'm stuck fiinding something to fit.

Should I just try tractor supply co and get an 84" belt like the old factory one measured?
I have had to make several trips to T/S to find the right belt. Get close then exchange.
