Question and Answers

Q:

New Craftsman Mower belt does not fit. Sears says some modification may be necessary. What modifications are needed?

A:

I can understand the confusion the part replacement has caused. Substitute parts often cause some confusion. While you wait for the expert you might take a look at the two previous posts I located for this belt. I attached the links below.

A:

I'm sorry this has happened; it appears as though there is a mistake with the parts system regarding your belt. Your mower deck should use belt number 144200 which is available HERE . This same belt also uses part number 24104 (retail part number).

The 144200 belt should be 1/2 X 88-3/8 which is about 6-7 inches shorter than the 144959(incorrect) belt.

Again, I apologize for any confusion (and headache) this has caused you.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
