An easy way to determine belt size is to simply “add 2″ to your off-the-rack trouser size. For example, if you wear a 36” waist trouser, then a 38-belt size will be a safe bet. Most will find this simple formula works best for pants worn at a traditional height–close to the natural waistline.
Continue to measure around the inside of the lawnmower deck until you record the distance between the last spindle pulley and Spindle Pulley 1. Add up the measurements to determine the total distance around the spindle pulleys. This is the size of the mower deck belt you need.
The “Deck Belt” goes around the pulleys right above the blades on the deck and then to a double pulley. The “Drive Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission, around an Idler pulley then over to the double pulley I mentioned before. The Drive belt also plays a role in making the wheels turn.
As a rule of thumb, your belt size is two inches larger than your pant`s waist size. For example, if you wear size 36 pants, you will probably do well with a size 38 belt. The leather and style of belt you choose can go a long way in showcasing your buckle and expressing your personal style.

ANSWER : Belt routing diagrams are sometimes on the underside of the running board [so when you are laying on your back, you can look up and see it, left side usually]. on a 46 inch deck, it’s probable that the diagram is on the rear, center of the deck, you can see it by going behind the tractor, kneeling down and looking forward at the deck

It keeps eating drive belts! It looks like the pulleys are not parallel. Can you align them? It appears to be spring loaded
ANSWER : Either the belt you are using is not the correct lenght and width, or one of your pulleys is worn out. Make sure that you are using the correct belt. Poulan mowers (made by AYP) will typically use a fractional length belt…meaning that you have to buy a Poulan belt to go on it. With the proper belt and pulleys, the front drive pulley should be level and the belt pattern should not contact anything other than the pulleys.
Good luck!
