How to change a motion drive belt on a Sears Lawn Tractor?

My model #is 917.28870. Tractor losing speeed in both forward and reverse. Starts slow then will speed up and then almost stop. It is the Craftsman Professional 24.0HP/42"cut, Electric start. Automatic transmission.
My guess is motion drive belt is slipping. How difficult is it to replace?

Hi, I have a craftsman 917.28726 lawn tractor.. I need to install a new drive belt. The pullys are different that those above. Their are two on the same shaft. The lower one, mower pulley, is much larger than the upper one, drive pulley. How do I get the new belt over the larger one to put it on the upper pully?
