Trying to replace the deck belt on my neighbor's old lawn tractor-Bolens Model 2036. Have the original parts manual which shows the OEM belt number to be 1747938. Parts manual also states this belt is 97.3" around. The problem is EVERY cross-reference I have found shows replacement belts to be only 96" around. Would like to order the correct part the first time if possible. Existing belt was chewed up and not able to be used to measure, also, does not have any visible part number on it. Should I just order by the parts manual (97.3" belt) or trust the cross-reference and order a 96" belt? Also, wondering if it would work to use a piece of rope, wrap it around the pulleys, and take a measurement that way?? Any old Bolens lawn tractor experts out there know an easier way? Thanks for any help offered.:help:
