Hi guys,
Help required, their is probably a thread on this already, but can some post the method with pictures on how to replace the Pump/drive belt on a Hustler 54 inch deck with a Kohler 20 Hp engine. Main issue I cannot get my head around is do I have to take the whole clutch off to get the new belt on, because that's how it looks withouy the correct information.
I know or the stuff about taking the tension out of the deck belt etc, it just how to get the new pump/drive belt onto the clutch without taking it off.....:confused:

Directions for belt replacement are in the manual. Just release tension on the belt before replacing it.

An excerpt is attached.

Thanks for the reply. Mine is a 2006 model and the engine pulley seems to be attached to the clutch pulley. The bely is off because it broke, so although I can put the new belt on all the other pulleys I cant seem to left it over or under the engine or clutch pulley because they are joined?
