Some vehicles that have A/C as optional had pulley arrangements that allowed for with/without A/C routing. You just needed a shorter belt. Newer vehicles all seem to have A/C standard and so it is more difficult to bypass the compressor on many of these. If you provide the manufacturer, year, model, engine size, and 2WD/4WD/AWD, we can research and address the question better.

I an wondering if you have the wrong drive belt. I did this myself and the belt was too tight so when I started the tractor up it put me into a ditch full of water. I had to get the right belt. My replacement was only one quarter inch shorter but would not work.

normally sign of a failing hydrostatic transmission. if your mower has one, start looking for a new one, mower that is as a new tranny will cost more than a new mower.

Don't know if this is your problem but here is what happened to mine..
My lawn tractor is about 10 years old. It has been generally quite reliable. However I was mowing with it one day and after 15 minutes or so it started hunting and then quit. After a few minutes it restarted and ran for a further 15 minutes. This time I disconnected the gas line after the fuel filter and nothing came out. I removed the filter and blew through it and it was clear. But no gas came out of the gas line till I pointed it downward then got a good flow. Reassembled and drove for a few more minutes and quit again. Checked the spark - good. I removed the gas line after the filter again intending to blow some air into the carburetor to clear any obstacles there except - no gas from the line. I removed the gas cap and out came the gas. The problem was the pinhole vent on the cap was plugged and not allowing air into the tank to replace the gas being consumed. Cleared that and solved the problem! Hope it helps someone else save $150 or whatever it costs to take it into the shop!

Remove the mower deck first.
Remove the electric PTO clutch assy.
Disconnect the clutch spring as to remove the tension on the drive belt.
From there it a simple matter of removing the belt from the pulleys. Depending the belt retainers you need to them too.
