Question
I have a 42" troybilt with manual PTO Model # 13BX609G063 Serial# 1F210H10023 Can you please tell me what deck belt it uses? I have gotten so many wrong answers but I need the right belt so we can mow our lawn The last belt we tried was 754-0498 It is about 1 - 2" too big

Answer
MTD 754-0485 PTO Belt (42-inch Decks w/Manual PTO)
   
MTD 754-0486 PTO Belt (46-inch Decks w/Manual PTO)

FYI, the new numbers for the first of the part number is 954 for both.

I looked up the belts in a book, an actual document on paper.  Can't believe they don't have the part number online.

Experience

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
