Belt Tensioning

I replaced the belt on my Z930A but cannot find a procedure for correct tensioning. When the mower is engaged, the belt vibrates. All belt guides seem correctly positioned so I'm thinking the belt may be loose.

I see no info regarding tensioning in the Tech Manual.

Any help would be appreciated.

Does it slip or squeak any? If not might be okay. I've noticed the long belts like on motors and drive so have some wiggle in them. They key I think is whether or not they stay on the pulleys. They seem to want to jump off pretty quick if there is any issues.
