There is or should be a model identification tag on the top left side, near the outer edge of the mower deck.

If you/we can identify the mower deck model, we can use the parts manual to identify necessary pieces.

No ID tag, photos.
I have an excuse. CRS.

It’s most likely a 42” deck. I don’t think it’s a 38” deck. There should be a spring loaded lever and a pulley that tensions the belt. You could have a broken spring. Or the whole setup is missing.

Go down till you see the idler springs there are two different ones.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

This spring is held inplace by a shoulder bolt. Some had sleeves, one fix is to use a bolt with flat washers stacked up so the spring fits over the washers. Stack the washers so when the bolt is tight the spring and lever can still move.
