Belt for mower deck from engine to center mandrel

Post  Midnight77 on May 10th 2014, 7:52 pm

Does anyone know what size belt is required from the engine to center mandrel on 78 GT18 to a 42" mower deck (#917.253580)?
Parts manual says it's part #6941R. I checked the Sears belt chart on this site and it is not listed. I checked the Gates Belt site and it says a BX100, assuming it is a 1/2" x 100". I measured the old belt and it's approximately 102" long but, it's probably stretched out.

GT16 DECK CLUTCH BELT

YOU WANT TO GET A ROTARY #7649 KEVLAR WRAPPED 5/8"X104" BELT AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY. IF SOMEONE ELSE IS INTERESTED. THE 48" DECK CENTER SPINDLE PULLEY IS A BIT LARGER THAN THE 44" DECK. THE 104" WILL COVER YOU EITHER WAY. YOU HAVE PLENTY OF ADJUSTMENT ON THE MULE DRIVE. IF ROTARY BRAND IS NOT YOUR CHOICE BE SURE TO GET A WRAPPED BELT.
HAVE A GOOD ONE

Belt from center mantrel to engine

Post  Midnight77 on May 16th 2014, 5:30 pm

Thanks for the information Georgia SS, prior to getting your information, I ordered a new belt thru SearsPartsDirect.com, using the 6941R part number and sure enough that belt was still available since it fits other mower decks. It turns out to be a 102" long, it fit with very little adjustment and everything works great and now I'm ready to mow this summer.
