The angle on the idler arm is reversed between the two photos.You are correct on the spring locator below I have an internet picture of what looks like a deck exactly like mine and compared to mine it is quite clear the spring is located in a different spot. The first picture is the internet picture and mine is the second

No need attempting justification for your abrasive action Bert. This is the internet not the Supreme Court. We are all human and most of us, not you I guess, make mistakes. ME, I make them daily.Well Slowy, if you clicked on the link you would have seen a comprehensive answer sent about 6 hours ago .
As far as I can see the belt is right, but the spring is anchored to the wrong hole and might even be wrong to boot, belt is right
Mechanic Mark generally chimes in with a link to the parts lists & manuals page on the Cub web site which may or may not work depending upon if it is locality locked.
Some times I can access it & some times not so I don't post links to ot because it is really frustrating following a dead link.
If you can not get onto the Cub page you will find you parts manual & repair manual on the K & C Spares web page in the Cub Cadet section but the ones on the cub site are better & more specific.
Yes you observation is correct because the tension spring is not pulling the arm to the right because it is anchored to a place too far to the left.The angle on the idler arm is reversed between the two photos.
That's it Bert? I'm with you. You probably don't want me to be as plain spoken as you are. Like you said we have a different culture.Well Slowy we will just have to agree to dissagree.
It is a cultural difference between Americans & the rest of the world .
What you consider to be abrasive we consider to be clear plain request ( denoted by the use of the world please & refrain ) .
Further more there is no need for you to be offended on Homfields behalf as he was clearly not offended and in agreemen with double posting causing confusion .
Finally there was no attempt at justification because there was nothing done that needed to be justified.
All that was written in the reply was the same as was writtten in the previous reply in the MTD section which you had obviously not bothered to look at before you took the oppertunity to repremand me.
I would also draw your attention to the fact that in every response I have provided Homefield with good & useful information.
You have contributed nothing of any value to this thread and I would like to suggest in a polite way you take your own advice on internet forum etiquette and find some useful advice to post for Homefield.
Oh and haaave a niceee daayee
