    So i had to take my deck off of my toro proline, a little bit older model. I cant figure out how to get the belt back on? Ive tried to call toro and get on their website, but to no avail. Does anyone know what to loosen or how to get the damn belt back on.

    With the front of the machine raised enough to get your hand on the center blade, Put the belt on the engine pulley. Loop the belt around the spring loaded idler pulley then start the belt in the groove of the center spindle pulley with the palm of your hand, Now rotate the blade to roll the belt the rest of the way on.

    It shouldn't, There's a lip on the top and bottom of the pulley to prevent that.
