Rider Mower-Crftsmn-LT1000-Mower deck reinstall

Craftsman Rider Mower LT1000 Model: 917.275390
Intek 18 OHV B&S Motor 42" cut

So my nephew was attempting to help me recently and removed the mower deck of my lawn tractor to clean up the underneath of it. I praise him for trying to be helpful but now he can't remember how it goes back on and I have no clue. I did some searches on Google hoping to see a youtube video but only finds ones that are not specific to this lawn tractor.

Can someone please point me in the right direction of a starting point.

Thanks so much appreciated.

I did a search online and the manual for your tractor is available here.

It's pretty simple, there are 2 rods going to the front of the deck from under the front steering axle and two that hang down from under the seat area that connect to pins on top of the deck. The cable goes through the little triangular bracket towards the rear with a clip through it and the spring goes to the top of the tenstioner pulley where the bolt is extra long and has a hole in it. Put the spring on, then the thick little washer, then a clip through the hole.
