    Okay, the deck belt on my 48" scag tiger cub popped off. I need to know of an easy way to get it back on the pulleys. Can anyone offer tips to doing this quickly? I have pushed the tensioner w/ a large metal pipe and tried pulling the belt over the left pully, the right pully and then tried pulling from the clutch w/ no luck and skinned up knuckles. I have changed this 2 other times in the past 5 yrs. but cant remember how to do it for the life of me. Please help! Thanks in advance.
