Installation of Craftsman auger belt

Any help greatly appreciated. I used this snowblower all last winter on my 2001 22.0 hp craftsman tractor. I never personally installed the belt and when I removed it this past spring I didn't make a diagram of how the pulley system worked. I have a 42" 2 stage snow thrower model no. 486.248531 with serial number 40084. The owners manual that I have shows a 3 pulley system but my setup has 5 pulleys. I have tried every combination that I can think of. I know a pulley is not used but I just can't get the right combo.
Is there an online manual that shows the 5 pulley system setup or has anyone had this problem before?

Thank you.

You may wish to try this address at the sears web site.

Parts & Accessories | Shop & Find Lawn & Garden, Appliance Parts at Sears PartsDirect | SearsPartsDirect.com

There are diagrams there for the purpose of parts identification. Good Luck

It's a rider with front snowblower

I checked out that website but I couldn't find anything to help. I basically need a diagram of one with 5 pulleys that shows how the belt loops around the pulleys.

Need belt part number please

I cannot find the manual for this snow thrower online, and need to identify the belt it requires.

Does anyone have the manual as a PDF, or know what the pat number for the belt is?

Thank you.

This manual is from the link provided by 2ndgencamaro. Page 12 shows belt routing, page 20 and 21 lists belts.
