Any idea if that belt has a standard replacement that might be found
locally at a NAPA store, for example? The broken belt has no numbers on

Failing that, where can "official" belts be ordered these days? It seems
so unlikely that the phone number in my manual still works. (I'm sure I
remember that the original Troy-Bilt was bought out years ago.)
I'll search the web and figure out something if I get no advice here.
