If you have the old belt just take it down to ur auto parts store. They have a belt measuring stick. And you probably could use a automotive belt in its stead anyways.

Can you wrap a piece of string around the pulleys and then measure the length of the string to get the size belt you need?

I dont want to take the wind out of your sails but if your talking about superior power he only checks back every once in a while now. Last I heard he was getting married and staying very busy.

These guys list a replacement Belt, maybe contact and ask what length it is then get one locally if you are in a rush

The belt should be 21/32 x 163 5/8

And you should not use an automotive belt on a lawnmower, they are wraped differently for the different loads. Buy the right part for your piece of equipment and it will last longer as well as your mower will last longer. Do not buy parts for your car at the lawnmower shop or your parts for your lawnmower at a car shop. They are different pieces of equipment with different requirements.

the part number is 104335

Do you have a mower model number so I can try a breakdown, thats all I have listed without a model number to look into it more.

wandfsmall, if you have a mower shop, you should have something in your signature promoting it :)

Ok, guys, it looks like I dropped the ball here big time. But someone was right, I seldom get back here anymore. Like wandfsmall said, don't use automotive belts for power equipment. Let me explain why. Automotive belts are what they call "fractional horse power" belts, meaning, they tend to have less strain on them. They are used for powering alternators, water pumps, etc in vehicles. They place less strain on the belt (less than 1 HP most likely) than your mower will. These belts may last a few weeks or maybe just a few days, but that is no fun either. Plus, in the end, you will pay more. Get the right belt and you will be satisfied.

Now, on the other hand, power equipment belts tend to be made from much stronger material, like kevlar or aramid (not sure on the spelling) but they are designed to do what your machine is designed to do. As wandfsmall said, give us a model number and we can help you.

Good luck,
Eli

P.S. I have added my email in my signature. In the future, email me and I will try to get back with you MUCH quicker. :)
