Going from the gray matter, put both arms into the unit ,one to the left of the drum and one to the right near the bottom, left arm over the blower........... On the left side, the belt will go down from the drum, under the motor pulley, up on the right ,,Use your right hand and pull the Idler pulley to the right and lay the belt on the top of the Idler pulley...... let the Idler pulley return to the left slowly..........Viewed from the front, belt down on the left, under the motor pulley up and over the idler pulley.... continuing up and to the right , over the drum.........

Thanks for the assistance and for the great deal on the parts. I was able to make the repair, took a modest amount of time and still had some cold ones leftover while I sat and watched the test run.
For anyone interested in specifics, here are a few variations on my GE model from the Frigidaire in the post I referenced for the repair:
Cheers to you all!
- I was able to lean my machine back and did not uninstall the door
- no glue was present, which eliminated the need to razor blade the old gasket off
- no 3/8" copper tubing tool was needed; the fitting for the soap/bleach just fits right inside
- the inner spring was held tight by a screw assembly...this was a bit of a bugger to get off
- the replacement gasket seems to be much higher quality than the original (yay!)
- I also took the time to clear the trap in the bottom of the machine (yet again) while it was tilted back and walked away with 36¢, a nasty kids sock, some miscellaneous tidbits, and four hairpins (time for yet another leture with the wife about the hairpins)
