That will show you the routing and belt number.

Perhaps, there is a problem with the tensioner pulleys.
Or as I have recently discovered, when changing drive belts/cutter belts,
They're ever so slightly, not the right length.
Or even, not the right thickness.
But if you can check the tensioner pulley springs, to make sure they tighten up correctly, that might give you a clue as to the problem.

According to MTD Parts Lookup:
The correct UPPER belt (referred to as the PTO belt and runs from engine to deck) is part # 754-04122 (Also available as 954-04122...in which only the packaging of the part makes the first digit of the part number change. The two belts are identical.)
The correct Description is:
[ Belt, V-Type, A x 90.24 ]
What that means in plain English is that this is a 1/2 inch wide V-Belt with an Industry Standard "A" cross sectional profile. The more important info would be that it's 90.24 inches long.
As for the "Deck Belt" (the lower belt that runs only from blade to blade to blade) it is listed as part #754-0349 or #954-0349 (again, identical belts, different packaging).
A very common problem we see in my shop is that the front pulley (the one directly attached to the engine) shows signs of separation at the weld and the grovve of the pulley becomes wider, therefore making the belt "act" like it's longer because it runs deeper in that groove.
Reply by using the "Add Comments" section if you need any futher info. I'd be glad to offer other possibilities for these symptoms you've described.
Hope this helps,
