Hi Jay, I cut and pasted this response from the other thread you asked this in:
Jay, from my notes the belt to use with the 48" replacement deck (not the model 48 46" deck) is M119872. I have a 317 with the newer 48" deck and that is the belt I use. I'm not sure if having a Magnum changes that - do you know if the shaft height is the same as the KT17? I thought they were basically the same block.
From my memory when I first got this deck I believe the part number in the part catalog (catalog 2358) is wrong as it shows the 317 using the same belt as the 140, 300, etc. If you look at the belts for the model 48 deck (catalog 1069) and 49 thrower (catalog 1080) you will see that in general the 140, 300, 314, 316 kohler, etc use one belt and the 317, 316 onan and 318 use a different belt.
If you actually have a 317 with an onan then it is a completely different belt but I don't have first hand knowledge of that.
I have to say that a number of WFM members helped me out a lot when I first got the 48" deck and that Keeping It Green was very helpful as well.
