Under the seat of your mower, there should be a silver and black sticker with a model number on it. It probably looks like 917.123456 . Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and plug in your model number. Follow the links to the deck diagram and find your belt listing. You can even order your part thru them. Craftsman riding mowers are usually made by A.Y.P. and will have fractional belt sizing...that means the belt will be 1/2" x 88.23" or 5/8" x 96.4". Unfortunately this means you will have to get your belt either thru sears, or thru another retailer that offers belts specifically made for your mower. Check with your local repair shop. A general diagram is also on the sears site. That might make it a little easier to reinstall.
Good luck.

Make a drawing of the deck routing and pull the belt off the mower measure the width and length of the belt and order one on line or go to a mower shop with the belt and they can size it to the one you need. Do the same for the drive belt.

Capstans wont turn all the time


This is notorious of a stretched belt. The belt should be a new one of less than 3 years old otherwise it needs to be replaced. The dula capstan decks are picky as to what belt goes into them that is why I get mine from Marrs Commununications and the belt would be the 16.8 " sized belt. Oler decks like that also need all kinds of other work as well.

LTX 1000 CRAFTSMAN /42 IN. DECK BELT LODGED ABOVE PULLEY AND STOPPED MOWER AND BROKE BELT. IS THE BELT SIZE 96 OR 97 INCH? THE BELT HAS DONE IT TWICE/STCK BETWEEN THE PULLEY AND THE THING ABOVE IT.


Without the model number, I couldn't tell you what belt goes on the ground drive. That 174883 is a 5/8 x 97" and is your deck drive belt. Your ground drive belt may just need replacing. They will wear thin and loosen up between the pulleys and cause the problems you're having. The old belt may still have the numbers on it.
