Description:
This drive belt 54 is a genuine manufacturer sourced replacement part. This is the main deck belt that rotates the blades on riding lawn mowers/tractors. Over time this belt will stretch and wear out, eventually breaking. Check on the belt periodically and replace it when needed to maintain top performance. Please note, this includes one (1) rubber belt per order.

To replace this drive belt you will need a set of wrenches and pliers.

Parts were worn, sway bar was bent.
Had to evaluate the placement of the bar as the original part had been removed and schematics did not advise WHERE the bar attached. Had to consult several Youtube videos. The belt is the best quality, toughest and best performing I have ever put on this machine.
