I'm looking for the correct belt dimensions for a mf 5 riding lawn mower. Ours cut the transmission drive belt to shreds, don't know the correct size to replace it with. I could get it close by measuring with a string, but was hoping to find correct size to eliminate some trial and error. Thanks in advance for your help.    Mh44d.

This service manual doesn't state what the belt dimensions are, but thanks for the interest just the same!        Mh44d.

Ok. I just got home and measured the deck belt. No #s left on it but it's 1/2 X591/2 long. Hope this helps you out and gets you cutting again.

Drive belt OEM # is 523733M1, and the dimensions I find are 1/2 x 58.  If the outer dimension is 59 1/2", then likely the inner would be about 58".

Yes,Daniel will be right. I did measure O.D. Olcowhand to the rescue as usual. Thanks.

I rescued nobody.  Belts & how companies measure confuse the heck out of me.  Some go by OD while others ID length.  I wish they ALL would standardize how measurements are stated.

Thanks for all the help folks! I'll go to the local auto parts store and get a 1/2" belt 58"s long. Would anyone know the correct length of the mower deck belt, I'll try and get both belts in Kevlar ordered up, and the next time I have belt troubles I will have a good set of spare belts on hand.      Mh44d.
