I am putting my mower on for the spring as usual however when the deck is all attached and I put the mower drive belt on the tractor pulley and deck pulley, the tension rod arm is very difficult to move back toward the hook on the deck. It get's within 6 inches but then it pretty much stops and if I try to move it further is literally starts to bend the tension rod itself.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the replies, after some digging into this found out my dealer gave me the wrong belt this winter. Found correct one on green parts store website and ordered it. The one I was sold by dealer was over 3 inches shorter than correct belt. Problem solved. Glad I didn't for the tension rod arm and break it.
