I have a John Deere LX188 and had a bit of a grass fire which destroyed the secondary deck belt.
I put a new belt on, and as soon as I engage the deck it starts burning rubber and smoking. When I shut it off the pulley that you see in the pic is blazing hot. That's where it's happening but I can't figure out why.
I took the belt off and it's rotating freely.
Any help is appreciated on what to do next.
