I have an L 130 John Deer Lawn Tractor which is about 4 years old. Cutting the grass yesterday, the traction drive belt slipped off the pully on the top of the transmission. Thinking it would be an easy fix, I removed the mower deck and tried to replace the belt on the pulley. However there is a bolt which acts as a belt guide and it is hard to see how the belt came off with that in place. It is even harder to see how I can get the belt back on the pulley.
It seems obvious that that belt guide bolt can be removed but my concern is that it is soooooo inaccessible that I am not sure I can get the guide back on after putting the belt back.
