Go to the manuals section and you can find the sears number there then cross it to a regular belt number. I got the belt for my Super 12 from there and it fit perfectly.image.jpg

If I looked up the correct tractor, it's a Sears 6474H. According to that list above, it's a 5/8" X 81".

The size is correct but any "L" series belt is not power rated and for "Light duty"

I have a v-belt question about 5L vs B.

 

Since a B78 v-belt is similar dimensions to the 5L810.

I've read that the 5L means light-duty (FHP - fractional horse power).

Is a B78 belt what we need?

Dimentions are the same its the materials that are different

 

L series are Light duty , most used in driving electric motors ,fans ect.

 

B Series is power rated but not a kevlar corded & covered belt, these are NOT for  clutching applications!

 

Kevlar belts are what should be used on these machines for proper performance and durability, they are designed for the severe clutching and twisting experienced with most L&G applications

I use the 5L810K from TSC for my drive on my ST16, it's Kevlar and seems to last. Jerked my head off and wheelied across the yard the first time I popped the clutch after install
