The engine for my 1250 is almost done being rebuilt. I want to install all new belts while I have it apart. What are the best belts to use / get so I don't have to worry about replacing it for a while. How do I get matching belts for the PTO (3 belts total)?

Any help is appreciated

I quite often have good results matching up belts a NAPA.

Don't be overly concerned about getting a matched set. .....Even some of the matched sets weren't a perfect match from the oem's.

As long as the 3 belts are relatively close, the shortest one will stretch first when run, to the length of the next shortest belt. .....These two will then eventually stretch to the length of the remaining belt. ......After all 3 belts have been run awhile, and re-adjusted, they will become a "matched" set.
