    okay first the fixed pulley on my lazer came off[ opposite the tension pulley]. . found the pulley but not what holds it in place. replace correctly with a little help from junior [thanks bud].
    left the belt twisted an it broke after a while.
    heres the info. went to napa an got an exstremely strong looking belt 111 inches long . the original calls fot 111 7/16 inch.
    short version . it broke after 3 lawns.
    1. dont allow belt to run twisted.
    2. exmark has one more strong drive belt an u best use it.
    3. to make an easy job of installing belt
    [this is mule drive] . hook a rubber tie dn strap to the bar in front of the tension pulley. pulll it dn thru the tension pulley
    and tight enough to pull tension spring
    as far as it will go. hook the other hook to something in the motor area that is strong enough to hold it.. walla . slip the belt on an unhook tie dn. make sure there is no twist in the belt.
    hope this helps somebody.
    ps i know u strong arms dont need this last. but im carrying a good dose of artritus. and take every easy out i can get
