It has been so many years since I put one on it that I can't remember but I do remember that the last time I changed it I went to a belt and rubber place with the old belt and got one the same size. It is due for a belt this spring and I will do the same again. Take a thin roper or something similar and run it around the pulley's and measure the length. It's a 5/8 belt as I recall.

Central Indiana Rubber?

This is my old belt. I don't know if some of it is missing or not.

I did some searching and found some info on the speed reduction kit #238. It looks like it has a 10" pulley and uses the 49" belt. My 8" pulley I would guess would use a belt in the 44"-46" range. In the link Scroll down to the bottom you will see the Speed Reduction kit info.
