Problem getting the proper belt . Belt # 954-0467 I purchased 2 of these correct belts but they both were too short. The oem belt size is 5/8 x 91 in . The belts I bought were advertized as the correct size, but one was only 89 3/4 in. long the other one was 90 1/4 in long. Each belt caused the transmission to not disengage when I released the pedal. I finally elongated the bolt holes on the frame so I could move the variable speed pully forward about 3/8 in. So far that has corrected the problem. I wondered if anyone else has had a similar issue.
