Picked her up for a whopping $180 with deck and blower :D someone tried to restore did an ok job but I am gonna re-do it. got a few question though, what size are all the belts they are pretty well shot , and where is the tag with numbers located not sure what year it is ? other than the c-man seat it looks to be all original. And the best part it runs !!!!

Anyone know the belt sizes and the closest color to factory that I can get ?

If you haven't found the information yet:
the starter/generator belt is part #2176393 and is 3/8 x 36.6
the drive belt is part #2154273 and is 1/2 x 42.26
the pto belt is part #2121078 and is 1/2 x 35.1

Many feel that the Ford Poppy Red is as close as you can get to the original 725 color.

Which deck and blower do you have? There was a 42" deck and a 32" deck.

The 42" deck used the following belts:
pto to deck - part #2108099 - 1/2 x 44.1
spindle or deck belt - part #2108209 - 1/2 x 82.1

The 32" deck used the following belts:
pto tp deck - part #2108248 - 1/2 x 48.1
spindle or deck belt - part #2108151 - 1/2 x 63.1

The early snowblower used 3 belts while the next model was a single belt.

The single belt blower part #1721533 - 1/2 x 56.1
The 3 belt blower -
part #2120708 - 1/2 x 35.1
part #106123 - 1/2 x 26
part #2152017 - 1/2 x 44.9

Some of them are listed as NLA but you can find a good quality kevlar or blue belt close to those sizes.
