Exmark 36 belt drive

I just bought an older used Exmark 36inch model number 36-12.5k serial number 12273

I am having difficulty with the belts as it is loose causing it come off and not engaging the blades. I am relatively new and this my first commercial lawn mower. How do I tighten the belts and tension so that this does not happen anymore? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Is there a turnbuckle on the linkage to the idler arm? If so adjusting it so it takes up more slack is the fix. If you run out of adjustment it is time for a new belt.
