Might want to take a look at this listing for a C3 mower in the For Sale section. The mower is currently on a cub loboy (not a numbered series), but the mounting probably is very similar.

My mower pulleys are all solid and have 3 grooves-----they measure 4.5" in outer diameter, and pto pulley is 6.5".
my pto speed at wide open runs at 1250 rpm,---this is on the 6-speed and in L-1 you can crawl thru some mean growth with it!( right now my yard/orchard is between ankle and knee high and I can work my way thru it!)---its slow but it works.---if you get the drive OR driven speed above that you will have major power problems!
If you dont have the 3 groove pulley, I am sure you could weld one up to fit the shaft.and use these dimensions as a starting point!

The Allis C tractors of mine have 540 pto speed and run 7.5 inch drive pulley and a 6.5 mower pulley on them, BUT they have 3 times the power of the Lo-Boy engine, also run fast in low gear and modock,---problem with them is that you cant get very close to stuff!---the 185 in L-1 will allow you to get inch close without hitting anything! thanks; sonny
