    Drive Belt Routing John Deere STX 38 lawn tractor
    Does anyone have a routing diagram for the drive belt (not mower deck drive belt) for a John Deere STX 38 lawn tractor? I need to replace mine and I have no idea of belt routing and tensioning.

    The routing is rather straightforward by first noting which is the idle/tensioner pulley. The other pulley operates off the brake system to either eliminate or relieve the tension. The only real issue is removing parts necessary to remove or install the drive belt. I thank those that helped me get this answer.
