:welcome: to the forum Brianjr

That belt doesn't look right at all. It seems way too loose.

Would also be nice if they used stainless steel hose clamps to secure that fuel tank in place instead of zip ties.

Do you know the year?
Give a model number? Serial number?
Some more pictures of the whole thing?

Maybe we can narrow down exactly what you have and get some help in the way of diagrams and maybe a manual with parts numbers.

Without knowing what your model and serial number is I found this,
Yard-Man 7200-0 PDF User's Manual Download & Preview
(edit, figure 12 there shows what I attached below, I just noticed this it might be easier for you to see)I am going to remove the attachment below, to save on my allotted attachment space.
That is for a 30" 8 horse machine.

The belt setup looks the same?
The part numbers may be different?

Maybe by looking at the diagrams you can see if you can adjust that belt up?
It looks way too loose.
I think your idler pulley needs adjustment, if you can't adjust it the belt might be stretched and you need a new one. See if you can figure out how it adjusts.
Or,
ARE....THE....BELTS....NEW?
Do you know? Do they look new? Or are they old, & worn.? I can't really see by looking at your pictures.

Is it me or is that a Tecumseh tank on a Briggs engine?

Take the belt off and put a dark mark on the outside with a sharpie. Wrap your wifes fabric measuring tape around it or extend a tape measure and carefully roll the belt out the circumference. You can call the Manufacturers 800 number or parts direct and get the width and length. Clearly the one you have is Touluse, Loutrec.
