Sounds like it might not be installed properly, or maybe it has been modified at some point so the #'s don't match what the tractor actually is.

Roger, the engine number indicates that mower is 25 something years old. Somewhere on the steering column or on the back of the tractor, should be a nine digit number separated by a period such as 917.123456. If you can find that, you can go to Sears parts and find the belt number. BLT

He's probably getting the right belt but it's not installed properly. There usually is/are stiff wire "keepers" that are installed at a right angle to the pulley that keep them from blowing off every time the belt moves around a little bit like when you depress the clutch or step on the brake. After installation of the belt take a look for any keepers and make sure they're close enough to the pulley to be effective at keeping the belt on without rubbing on the belt and tearing that up. Some of these keepers may have been bent out of the way in the process of replacing the belt or they may be missing altogether. They need to be in place in order for things to work properly. Richard
