If you've smelled rubber it's likely time for a new belt, But...... Check your hydro belt as well. Make sure the hydro belt idler arm is positioned straight up/down (pulley 1.25" off the frame), Then install the new deck drive belt and make that adjustment with the rod/spring on the triangle plate. Adjust so the handle snaps into place.
The rear deck belt guides should be adjusted 1/8" to 3/16" forward of the pulley and away from the belt when engaged, Also lube the triangle plate and all moving deck engagement parts to assure proper tensions.
The proper belt is a B85 RAW edge, Anything else is a waste of time and money.......
