Craftsman 536.720720 riding mower

I have a riding mower that the blades do not seem to be rotating properly. I checked the belt and it seemed loose, so I ordered a new one. Stock part number is 37X111. I got the belt and installed it. It has just as much slack as the one I replaced. Is there a tensioner? I've tried to locate one, but don't think it has one. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

Is it loose when you engage it?

It's not as loose, but not as tight as it should be....

There should be a pulley that moves to tighten the belt when you engage it. Do you see one moving?

If that could be a 536.270720 instead of a 536.720720 the link below shows the belt routing around page 28-29. Have a good one. Geo
