    There is either a fixed pulley that is adjustable or one that has a spring on it. Yours probably is a fixed pulley with nut that can be loosened then moved to tighten the belt.

    Is the tightener nut not on top of the deck, right behind the motor kind of on the left side of the mower, sort of in front of the transmission but to the left side of the machine?

    If you don't want to lose another pulley I would suggest using a nylock nut on the pulley bolt.
