What is the model number of the mower?
If it is a 42 inch 917.253540 or 48 inch 917.253551, then the drive belt is part number 6941R
which is a 5/8 by 103 inch V-Belt.
The center to outer mandrel belt for the 42 inch mower is part number 6942R
which is a 1/2 inch by 87 inch V-Belt.
The center to outer mandrel belt for the 48 inch mower is part number 6943R
which is a 1/2 inch by 92 inch V-Belt.
If you can't find the manual on this site, try stripmine.org/sears.

The SS-15 manual I have shows it was printed in 1972. The 1973 mower manual for 917.253250 shows the drive belt is 3555R which is also 5/8"" by 103". I think all the Suburbans from 12 hp to 18 hp may have used the same decks. I know my neighbor's 1969 12 hp Suburban and my 1973 SS-16 used the same deck.
I hope this helps,
