    I broke a pump drive belt last night on a 440 with range wings. While it was still light enough to see, I removed the driveshaft from the front deck, but couldn't get the belt off due to the "clutch anchor"??? I couldn't see how the clutch anchor is attached to the frame. What do I need to remove to change the belt? I will be taking the seat out to gain better access to the pump/clutch. Do I need to remove the front deck to get access from underneath?

    Thanks for your help!

    You do not need to remove the deck, you do need to unbolt the drive shaft though, which it sounds like you already did.
    The clutch anchor simply unbolts where it is attached to the frame.
    It is a time consuming job, but it is fairly simple.
