hello, go and purchase a manual it explains it well .In a nut shell adjust str levers to a spec then the pumps on the adjusters to a neutral rotation of the drive wheels [wheels jacked up ].
U may discover linkages r worn and/or the hydro pulley is worn out on one side also. This will influence the above procedure eg machine will require adjustment to allow 4 this generally reducing forward speed .

Numerous tensioner designs for the ground drive belts, v belt and the micro- v
Ground drive pulley wear is common [5x pulleys] [3x idlers ]
There is also an upgrade 4 the tensioner arm pivot bearings

Experienced all of the above .
