44 Iinch 11.5 Hp Trailmower #T11544

Broke or wore out the belt. Purchased a new OEM belt and put on. Unfortunately i must have put it on incorrectly as it worked for about 20 minutes fine and then the belt just shredded. I found a diagram about how the belt should go on but obviously there must be more to it.
