sometimes you need to redesign the clutch.... but to find the proper belt size take a piece of rope and some tape.... make sure your clutch is pressed in and locked... wrap the rope through the pulleys the way it is ment to go. and pull it tight now mark where the end of the rope meets and add an inch to that. that should work.
