I know this has probably been posted before, but for anyone looking for a new V-belt for a Woods 42, I just purchased a new one from NAPA (#B136) that matches the Woods belt (#3546) I had as a spare for about 2/3 the price:
Woods $61.26 (Messicks and Graham Tractor)
NAPA $39 (including tax and no shipping)
eBay $28 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/REPLACMENT-BELT-FOR-WOODS-OEM-SPECS-3546-/280566982412?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415318670c), but with NAPA I was able to compare it in person. Looked exactly the same as the Genuine Woods belt. Hope it wears the same! Guess I'll find out next spring when the mowing begins again!
Thanks Dale, I'm about to rebuild a 42 mower and this will come in real handy.

Not all Woods 42 mowers are created equal.
Woods 42C-4 (and C-1, C-2, C-3) take Woods Belt #1469
Woods 42C-6 take Woods Belt #27652
Woods 42CF and Woods 42CL take the Woods Belt #3546 mentioned above.
All of these are within a few inches length of each other but that may make the difference in getting it to work right.
There are different part numbers for some of the Woods 59 varieties as well.
The B136 is 133" long, and I have been running them on my Woods mowers for years (42C-?). It may not be the exact right fit, now that I see the post from Scrivet, but it does seem to work fine. What is the length of the Woods #1469?
'52 Cub ("Great Personality") 148xxx
'48 Cub with FH ("Gunny Cub") 38xxx
'57 Lambretta (a slow work in progress)
'74 Triumph TR6 (Mama's toy)
3546 - REPLACEMENT WOODS BELT
5/8 X 140.25"
B136 - B-SECTION V-BELT
21/32” X 139”
These are from Vbelts4less.

While looking for a belt for my Continental Belton mower I am rebuilding and I found this website.......prices are quite good.

Since my Woods 42C-? is painted red and there is no data plate, how can I tell which model I have?
This belt (3546) works fine, but I am also curious about the length differences of those listed.
About 30 minutes from the house. I've bought from them, although I just found them recently, and was satisfied with what I got.

I have had decent luck with VBelt Supply. They can cross an IH number (fast hitch C-2 mower). Prices are good for kevlar corded belts. They are a division of A&I.

To tell if you have a 6 versus a 4 or under; to me it's simple to look at the reinforcement braces attached directly to the deck. If they go from front to back it's a 6 (they flare out at the front and back). If they are only on the front half then it's a 4 or under. On the top of the 42C-4 parts list on the manual server it gives a break down for 1 thru 4. Really doesn't matter as those all use the same belt.
The data/serial number plate is on the PTO and belt shield. It's usually on a shelf in the garage of the first owner after the first belt adjustment. Since the majority of the manual pictures show it missing I guess they didn't think much of it either.
The real mystery is what happened to the 42C-5?
