    Used search, but didn't find what I was looking for.
    The machine is a Lazer HP with a 48" deck.
    The deck belt broke and I went to replace it this afternoon.
    Now it has been a long time since I replaced this particular belt, but I sure don't remember having to unbolt anything. However I can't see how the belt can route properly without removing the bracket holding the spring tensioned idler so the belt is inside the bracket. Maybe I'm just braindead today. What's the correct procedure?

    It's been a while since I have done that as well. But I do remember a bolt and nut holding something. Must have been the idler. I recall I had someone put a ratchet on the nut (under the seat) while I layed under the machine w/ a wrench on the bolt. I also had to unbolt the clutch as well as unplug it.
