I have an old square body wards [I only know this because "wards " is the only  thing that I can make out,   on the under seat tag.......

I was messing around with the mower today and ended up with both belts on the same side of the varidrive sprocket... on investigation I noticed that the sprocket was just holding on with the bottom bolt.........I'm guessing that is what meshed the belts onto one side......I found a bolt for the top mounting hole and then decided that the belts looked pretty bad [probably originals??].......

The front has [what i can read??] 07788....I'm pretty sure of the o77, but the 88 could be,&& or ....66......the belt is a 5/8" and measures 53".......

the back belt is 5/8" with no numbers that i can make out.....it measures 44 inches

so far I have found a few close measurments but not 53 and 44.....I'll keep looking........but if someone give me a lead on a good seller I'll check that out too..

I would honestly be shocked to see original belts on a 5 year old mower, I would seriously doubt that those would be factory belts if they are though you should hang onto them, that's kinda cool to have?
