ok, so how would i go about measuring my belt size after a pulley swap? could i just use a cloth measuring tape and wrap it around all the idlers, pulleys and clutch setup to get my new belt length?

That might work, or you could use a piece of rope to put through everything and measure what you used...

(Edited to add) Tip: once you know what size belt your ride uses, use a sharpie to mark it somewhere on the tractor.

FearlessFront has a really good way to size belts on his Lifted Mudding Mower Updated #6 video.

the best way is use the rope to get a good starting point, but bring the tractor to the store so u can fit the belts
