The JD guy yesterday gave me that same number but he said he needed to know the mower deck size? 42-48- or 54 I was think why did that matter

 

Each deck has a different location for the driven pulley, so the belts are different lengths.

That is the part number according to JDParts for either the 39 or 47 deck.  There are later decks that work on your tractor but we would need the serial number off the deck to confirm which one you have.  I would put my money on the 39 as that is plenty of deck for the k181. 

 

 

The other variable in this is that the later 110/112 show a longer PTO drive belt than your machine.

I measured the deck from side to side its 44 so cut area probably 39, I ordered the belt that you mentioned. Pic attached

 

Ordered from JD Primary Belt, Secondary Belt, new dash sticker, new key sticker and the free battery kit (hope they give it to me free as the paper says)

 

Fine sanded again today the console and PRIMED, looks good

 

You guys look at the mower deck, Grandpa put a piece of sheet metal over the pulley hole?, I don't know why he covered it up, it doesn't look rusted, Okahoma has a bad Mud Dobber problem it could have been that, or maybe the grass debris was getting in there Thoughts? Should I tear this plate off of there?

I would say with 99% certainty this is a Model 39 and it is original.  Some would say they are only original once.  Excited to see your project unfold.

Wife bought me a new pressure washer, YEA! Tomorrow Im cleaning the frame

 

The JD guy was unaware of the FREE battery kit, I ordered it on line and it stated no price information! I wanted him to see the Part Number when he orders my other parts so he can order my kit

Very nice work! I also see you have the integral sleeve hitch. That's a huge bonus. They are getting tough to find. Your coming right along. Almost ready for another!

Brinly sleeve hitch attachments. Like a single bottom plow, disc harrow, cultivator, etc. It enables you to attach and lift/lower with the lift handle. Those are getting hard to come by and cost around 200 to 250 depending on where you are.

Saturday log spent probably six hours wet sanding and priming, man IM tired. Was able to get the wire wheel marks out by the wet sanding, first I used fine 120 then smoothed it with 1000. Also I removed the instrument panel sticker and ignition sticker. Also removed the seat and started removing the corrosion from the fender.

Looking really nice.  The red oxide primer is really hard to sand so I can see why you are tired.  You are doing this machine proud.  :good_job:

Today I received my parts from Roy at the NY Deere Salvage, cleaned off rust on lift mechanism and cleaned out grease zerts and primed, I have a winner the SPRING mechanism works great. I also purchased a mower deck arm and a PArking brake spring and 2 PTO cover brackets.

 

Sanded primed and painted shifter plate

 

Next I have to spray the JD Green then install the lift.
