Default Lawnmower drive belt replacement

I need to replace the drive-belt on my Craftsman front wheel drive lawnmower.
I removed the belt but there is no writing on the belt for an item/part# ?
The belt is a v-belt, 3/8", and I believe is about 32".

The mower is a:
Craftsman BRIGGS & STRATTON 6.25HP 190CC SELF-PROPELLED
Ser#: 090109M-015041
Model# 126T05-1349B1 00061
Platnum Series

Even with all this info., I cannot find a part# for the belt?

Think just getting a 32" belt will work ?
I hate to make 2 trips to Lowes.........

Bring the belt to a auto parts store. They should be able to find you a alternative. I have had good luck at O’Reilly’s

Are you sure about that model number? A google search for that exact number brings up only one result: your post.

If you go to:

https://www.ereplacementparts.com/cr...86_173893.html

And search the Model number you provided it comes back as a B & S engine. You need to look for a Model number on the mower body itself

After running around town and going to 4 places, I finally found the belt I need at Tri-County Power Equipment on Messer St in Laconia.

I've been following this thread hoping someone would post a good source to find my own belt replacement! I checked out the first link above, but it goes by part number.

Does anyone have a good website that goes by model number? I need parts for my Craftsman LT3000!

This has nothing to do with finding the right belt but...

The riding lawnmower mentioned above is the same model as the one my son owned.

It started running poorly and then did not want to start.

After verifying spark and fuel delivery the remaining stone to turn over was compression.

Apparently these have valves that go out of adjustment causing a loss of compression.

Following the instructions presented on a YouTube video, I was able to solve the problem in about an hour.

I don't wish to jinx anyone here but yours may be next.

I bought this in '07 and haven't done a thing to it other than replace the oil every spring and fuel filter once. The thing is among the best values I've ever owned.

I also don't want to jinx myself, but I've been looking for what to replace it with...

WinnisquamZ's advice was good, bring a belt to an auto parts store and they can quickly and easily match it up and give you a replacement.

That has a lot of years in it.
Riding mowers are much easier to get replacement parts for.

The only reason I got rid of mine is the aforementioned clover. So it was a rather large capital cost for the value added. Going to the small push mower just made more sense.
