I would suggest downloading the owners manual from www.managemyhome.com and it will tell you what size belt you need.

You need to post the 917.xxxxxx model number for some one to help you. There are about 10 different belts that fit different 42" Craftsman mowers.
You could also go to www3,sears.com and put in the same 917.xxxxxx model number and look up the part number. You do not want to buy a belt just by the size alone but must use one that is made for the machine application. The cheaper ones that you pick up in the local hardware store etc. like a 3Lxxx or 4Lxxx are made for low horsepower electric motors and will not last on your lawnmower.

Ranch King is a brand name of the manufacturer MTD.
Product manuals with part blow-up diagrams are available from MTD's web site,
Models are identified from the model number printed on a label under the mower seat.
The PTO and deck drive belts are shown on one diagram and the transmission drive belt is shown on another. The Form number on my printed Operator's Manual is 770-10526A (22HP, 46in cut) for Hydrostatic 817/818 models.
Parts can be ordered directly from MTD or other distributors on the web.
It is my experience that original brand name MTD belts work best.
The 22HP, 46" mower deck Ranch King Pro has 3 belts:
The drive belt which runs from the engine pulley back to the hydro drive unit to provide over-the-ground propulsion is part #754-0349.
A mower has either an electric PTO or a manual PTO, not both.
The electric PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs around the electric clutch on the engine shaft (activated by electric switch, not the mechanical hand lever that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0476 for the 46" deck.
The manual PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs off the pulley on the engine shaft (activated the mechanical hand lever to the left of the steering wheel that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0228 for the 46" deck.
The deck belt that goes around the 3 blade spindle assemblies on the mower deck, to drive the grass cutting blades is p/n 754-0349
In my experience, the PTO belt lasts about half a season, the other belts break about every other season when mowing 4 acres weekly.
