Have any model numbers - tractor and deck? The mower belts are listed with the mowers so width of cut - not the width of the deck and whether it is side or rear discharge. The choices are 36", 37" which has the left blade farther ahead than the right, 42" and 48". Measuring the length of the blades will get you close. Some have a longer center blade.

this is the only info I could get i could not see the model number on the body itself. it was worn off. the deck id number i saw was 0542ms05 74883 there is 3 blades. from tip to tip at the ends is 40.5 and its a side discharge and and the blade closest to the the shoot is about a half inch forward than the opposite blade. the model number on the hood is 416-8. hope this will help with getting some more info.

The 05-42MS05 mower deck is a 1986-88 42" side discharge. The "42" and "S" tell us that. The 74883 is the serial number and suspect it was made in 1987 as there does not appear to be any made in 1988 but they sold them in 1988 so likely overstock. You can download the operator manual from
https://lookup3.toro.com/request/request.cfm
Enter the 05-42MS05 model number and type the word none in the serial # box. For parts lists the best are here
http://www.partstree.com/parts/
Type Toro in the 2nd box and the 05-42MS05 in the 3rd box. The parts that are still available from Toro are priced.

The mower drive belt is 102742 replaced by Toro 94-2501. [6378 Gates 1/2"x103-1/4" 40 degrees] [6378 Napa 1/2"x103-1/4" 40 degrees]

The spindle belt is Toro 6738 [6886 Gates 1/2"x86"] [4L860W Napa 1/2"x86"]

My first choice would be original Toro belts but the others will work. They are a special design to withstand the reverse bending over the flat idler pulleys.

The 416-8 was made 1985-1997. Post all the numbers you can find on the engine data decal/plate and will try to find you manuals for it. They used a 16hp Kohler single-cylinder engine and a twin-cylinder Onan in the later years. Can't go by the mower deck because they changed very little and fit 1970's through the last GT's in 2007.

Sure does help. The 31-16K803 is a 1987 model. We don't have the manuals for it but you can order from
https://lookup3.toro.com/request/request.cfm
Enter the model number like this 31-16K803 and type the word none in the serial number box. Some manuals are a free download but you may elect to skip the 523 page Demystification Guide which is a huge electrical manual. Have posted the wiring schematics from it for your tractor in the Files of
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wheelhors ... rmanuals3/

Suggest you also join the 1st manuals Group of 10.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wheelhorsetractormanuals/
There is a Database Table there you can search using your 31-16K803 model number. There are several product service bulletins listed for your model and they are all in the Files of the 8th Group.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wheelhors ... rmanuals8/
You can use the Links in each Group to see a summary of what manuals are in what Group and once you are a member the Link will take you to it. Membership is required in each Group.

You can download the Kohler service and owners manuals for the M16 from
http://www.kohlerengines.com/onlinecata ... ies=Magnum
The 16 in the 1630207843 Kohler serial number tells us it was made in 1986 which is normal for a 1987 tractor. The engine's spec number should also be on the decal and may be 711523. At the Partstree link in my ealier post you can type Kohler in the 2nd box and the 711523 in the 3rd box and the ipl's for that engine will come up.

Let us know it you have trouble.

Garry
