Cub manual says 3/8" x 31"
What size pulley is on the Starter Generator?
Someone may have put the wrong tensioner bracket on it.Had that happen on a Case 210.I ordered a stock size belt and in this case it was to Big.Someone put a shorter tensioner bracket on it.
Here's a pic of my 129 for reference.I need to get a new belt for it to very soon.you can see it's Almost out of room on the adjuster.

If anyone has an oem original belt to interchange maybe I could help.
Normally the starter belts are cogged or have a deep groove to grip the pulleys better, the one in the pic above looks like a regular v belt and rides too deep in the pulley.

Na it's a Deep groove belt.It may be the original belt it's worn very badly.It's V goes the whole way to the bottom of the pulley and is worn to a Point.But still starts the tractor fine Doesn't slip either lol.I'm pretty sure I'll be replacing it if I can't sell the tractor soon.
Winter is coming Fast.If I can't sell it soon I'm gona get it ready for Snow duty.
