Hi Everyone! I recently got a 1987 JD 130 Lawn Tractor with the 9HP Kawasaki engine and 30" deck. It runs like a top and everything seems to be in good shape with the exception of the deck. I bought a new idler pulley and belt. I don't have an operators manual yet (ordered one) but from the online parts houses they call for a M90958 belt which shows to be a 1/2" X 55" V belt. No matter how I try I cannot get this belt to fit - it seems too short.
Does anyone have the "belt pattern" for the 30" deck? I can't find anything online for that size deck - it seems it must be an odd-ball.
