It will be for the top of the center pulley on the deck that runs from engine. Drive pulley if you will.

Driveshaft is a 1" shaft and uses a 3/4 x 11 spline coupler. Only place I found them is Surplus Center. I bought one then had a local driveshaft place build me a new one since they couldn't find replacement u joints.
If you can do fab work, cut that deck up and move the center spindle a few inches forward. You can then use standard pulleys and not worry about the cogged timing belt or pulleys that are NLA.
that pulley kind of looks like one to the rear PTO, but I would have to look at my parts bin.

As a person that has recently rebuilt a 54 inch snapper deck, use the money for another mower. The biggest problem after you get the deck rebuilt is that the blades are NLA. I had to sub in some other blades. I had to make spacers for the bolt holes and then tack weld the blade to the holder. The drive pins for the subs do not line up with the drive pins on the holder. No drilling the holder,it is hardened. The deck scalps bad due to not having an antiscalp wheel on the front. Scalping tears up the belts. The Pullies are NLA except for the center double, its like $250.
Just had to reweld the tack welds tonight because of hidden rocks in the yard.
Of course, as I am typing this I just thought about drilling the mower blades to fitt the old pins,so there is that option instead of welding.

I also have a deck that probably needs rebuilt and after looking into the cost I just went and bought a new mower just for mowing instead and I use the snapper 1855 for the tilling and snow blowing
