Craftsman Lawn Tractor, Model # 247.288851 - How to tighten/increase tension on the cutting deck pully belt after parts replacement

Removed cutting deck and replaced some parts. Reinstalled parts and cutting deck using "operator's manual" that came with lawn tractor.
Everything seems to be working properly except the belt tension on the cutting deck is too loose
- I have checked and rechecked the belt configuration
- I am fairly confident that I have the bow-tie pins in their orginal location
I think it might have installed part number 732-04871 incorrectly but I can't see another option from the diagram in the operators manual.

Thank you for trying, but my mower is only a month old. I bought it brand new it has less thand 10 hrs. on it. This response does not apply. Nothing is rusted and my PTO cable is not broken.
