If you notice how the belt leaves the motor pully and goes to the transmission, it makes a 1/2 twist? Well reverse that twist and the tractor will go in the correct direction.

SOURCE: What size hydro drive belt
The Craftsman drive belt #140218 is a 1/2" by 84.3" belt with an aramid fiber wrap.
Since this belt is contacted on both sides (inside and outside) as it runs the pattern on your mower, it must be replaced with another belt of exact size and construction. If you were to use an 84" belt, then the tension pulley would not have enough slack to disengage the transmission. Likewise, an 85" belt would have too much slack and cause the trans to slip.
The original belt is available through www.searspartsdirect.com for about $25 plus shipping. Check with your local lawnmower repair shop, they probably stock this belt and will be competitive in price.
