You can download the manual here.

When you get to the page, enter the captcha shown and the download link will appear above where you entered the captcha. Watch out for big "Download" buttons, as google ads trick a lot of people into downloading something totally irrelevant to what was intended.

The belt diagram is on page 23.

You may need to zoom in quite a bit, it's all in black and white... kind of hard to make out, but it pretty much shows the direction around each pulley.
