    Hey Turner, Sal here, have a honda HRX2172HXA BE MAGA1692770, self propelled mower.
    Its about 4yrs old, becoming a DIY Fan, attempted to replace broken drive belt. Have new honda belt on and in place, made the mistake of taking to much apart by removing mounting bolts for engine and flat metal rings on under side of deck, as trying to remove debry shields. Ready to re assemble but having trouble remembering what correct sequence of replacing parts. Any chance of seeing a video or parts blow up of cronalogical correct reassembly, under deck. Thanks for Your consideration. Sal
