Jenni,






I am sorry you are having a problem with installing the belt. I do not recall a model that has cut outs in the chassis that the belt passes through. If you could please reply below with the model number of your tractor, I will be happy to assist you in fixing this.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark.

Thanks, looks like I am using the right belt. And I have routed it correctly. But between the clutching flat idler and the clutch V dler, the belt routes thru a cutout in the chassis. Standing stii I can not tell if t,he belt clears the edges of this channel, looks like it ewould rub. Maybe itWill run in then center of them channel when clutch disengages. And lift link is right there, would like to know whether I route belt towards insider or outside before installing the mower. I have the manual, don't see this

Thank you for your question. I have provided you with the instruction for replacing all of the belts on your tractor. The sizes of the belts are as follows.

) 140218 is 1/2 wide 11/32 thick 84.5 inches long.

) 144959 is 1/2 wide 11/32 thick 95.25 inches long

) 139573 is 1/2 wide 11/32 thick 83.63 inches long

If you are going to use after market belts you have make sure to use the correct belt finish. The rubber-coated belts will grip harder than the cloth-coated belts. The ground drive belt should be a cloth-covered belt. If you use a rubber-coated belt, the tractor may pop the front wheels off the ground when you release the brake. To some people this would be fun but it is hard the tractor and the transaxle.

I hope this is helpful.

If you need any other information, please feel free to add additional details below.

Hi Danada, can't help with the belt length but the Craftsman replacement belt is listed on a decal under the hood. The drive belt serpentine is on a decal under the left footrest. Set the parking brake to release the tension pulley. Good luck.
