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.
There`s no standard size for a 42-inch-cut riding mower. Each model uses a different size belt. To give examples, some models use a drive belt that is ½ inch wide by 92 inches in length, while others use a belt ½ inch wide by 85 inches in length.

Locating Your Model Number

There is no specific time length that mower belts need to be replaced. Some belts may last longer than others due to different operating conditions. One thing is for certain though, the more the mower is used, the sooner you will need to consider replacing the mower belt.
A perfectly tight mower belt can rotate without slipping off but not cause the engine to over-exert and overheat. If the belt does not slip off while working and is not producing unfavorable sounds that indicate wearing off of the belt, then that is the perfect tightness for it.
Start the tape measure at the hole you use and measure to the end of the belt, where it meets the buckle. Belts are measured in inches and you should round to the nearest inch. If you measure 36 inches, you will want to purchase a size 36 belt.

A simple way to determine belt size is to simply “add 2″ to your trouser size. For example, if you wear a 34” waist trouser, then a 36 belt size will be a perfect fit. Most will find this simple formula works best for pants worn at a traditional height–close to the natural waistline.

I have a troy bilt pony and the drive belt to engage to blades keeps coming off. I have replaced the belt and the pully what else could it be?
ANSWER : Well i would take a long look at the spring which holds the tension pulley in place. if it is weak, or not connected correctly, there will be inadequate tension and the belt can come off. I would also take a look at whatever fasteners keep the deck in place as if it is not kept to the rear, there again will be too much play in the deck belt.
