Put a mark on your belt with some sort of marker.  Take a tape measure and work your way around the belt until you get back to the mark.  Calculate the number of inches that it is, and that is your belt size.

That'll work. Just make sure that when you wrap the rope around the pulleys, that the rope is as thick as your required belt is wide.

Alright I got the correct belt in and on, it was 119in y'all were right, and all that's left to get her driving is the clutch and shifter, and gotta fix the flooding problem. Hopefully I'll get to take a test drive tomorrow!  cheers
