Old belt numbers are not needed!!!
Just take the old one in to any decent parts store. Ask them to measure it and get one a half inch shorter, no problem.

The problem is making sure you go to a parts store where the guy actually knows what you are trying to accomplish.

Frequently i find myself at parts stores where if it's not in the computer, the associate has no clue.

Here are my schematics for the SN95 5.0 (belt lengths assume stock pulleys):

Also I normally just have them let me in the back. It's asking too much of 10$ an hour to know part #.

It's normally some prefix, the # of ribs, then the last 4 part #'s are inches including 1/10's as the last #

Example: for my 82.7"

5060827

50 is prefix 6 is ribs 082 is inches an 7 is 7/10"
