4008 does not show as good number, do you have a longer renumber/ Murray makes so many different models and the older ones are hard to locate information.

This is the model number taken off the mower KM8007 7 21981X12. I also need to know where I can locate a belt, if available. I live in Cleveland, Ohio 44135.

21981X12- OEM #37X49- 4HP B&S Drive Belt- (3/8"x 40-1/2"), this is only listing I can find that shows any part of the model. Take tape measure, and run around the outside of the old belt, or on the pulleys ,if you have no belt and read the outside dimension. Is it close to the 3/8 X 40 1/2 belt size shown?
