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.

By lower belt i suppose you are reffering to the drive belt or the blade deck belt, either way these belts are usually tensioned by a spring loaded idler pulley. If the belt is still too loose even with the pulley tensioning it, it may be time for a new belt (that one may have streched out a bit).
