I drove it back to the storage shed where I keep it when it is not in use but just parked outside in the sunlight. Went and got the jack out of my Jeep and jacked the front of the tractor up so as to get the most clearance between the bottom of the tractor and the top of the deck. I tried to get that long square belt back on all the pulleys but ended up with more belt than pulleys. I couldn't see anyplace where a pulley was missing. By that time I was getting over heated and my back was hurting from bending over trying to see under the tractor, so I put it back in the shed, shut the doors, and went back into house to suck up some of that AC. I did put the jack back into the Jeep in the place where it should be. I may look at it again tomorrow if it don't rain. . . or not. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

Tried To Cut Grass.
With all the rain we have been having, the grass has really been growing. I decided it had dried out enough to start cutting today. I fired up the lawn tractor and drove it out to the front lot to start cutting out there. I had to take it real slow to get the high grass cut and then I heard clank and the mower deck quit cutting. I shut it off and took a look and it had thrown the long belt that wrapped around all the pulleys that drove the multiple blades and it also wrapped around some idling pulleys and of course the drive pulley.
