Help, the leaves are piling up

I need the proper belt length for a 48" Sim Deck I D # 003794.All 4 pulley's are 3 1/2 inch OD and the tension spring is 9 1/4 inches long.I had trouble installing a new Sim belt # 165048 DF this summer because it seemed way too tight and today the belt got chewed up and I was unable to even reinstall it ( it is way to tight) Is this the correct belt for this deck or is there another problem. Thanks in advance.

Not sure if your problem is the same as mine was this summer with a 17GTHL but there is a sliding idler pulley that can be loosened and readjusted for a new belt. After it's installed you can see a green or red indicator behind it to make sure you got it right or in my case as the belt stretched you could readjust. It was a new one on me and may not be on all the tractors but was in the service manual.
