Does anyone know the drive belt part number for a John Deere 322 (1984-ish?, Sears?) snowblower and where to buy a replacement belt?

The belt is about 5/8" wide, 34" long, 3/16" thick, and has a 'flat' cross-section with 6 continuous ridges running parallel to the belt edge. The ridges fit into matching slots in the drive pulley's.

All the belts I can find are more like V or sloping U type shapes with flat bottoms.

Similar models might also be made by Jacobsen or Homelite, and maybe the model 320 has the same part as the model 322.

So the John Deere (JD) / Jacobsen (JA) / Homelite / Atlas / Snow Chief (SC) snow throwers all seemed to use the same types of belts, but different lengths.

Any suggestions for a part number for a 34" belt?

Thanks, it is a JD 322 snow thrower. However googling that part number yields no hits which makes me think it is obsolete.

Also thanks for the specification. That really helps and maybe I can find a suitable belt with that info. Googling shows me that J-section belts have 2.34mm pitch (distance between ribs), ribs are 1.8mm high (deep?), and the belts are 3.5mm or 3.9mm thick. The current belt is closer to 4.7mm thick. But a J-section belt would definitely fit. In which case I am looking for a 340J6 (imperial) or 6PJ864 (metric).

nnyparts.com...your info solved my problem. I need a 340J6 belt. This is the same as (or very close to) the Toro 55-9300 belt for a Toro CCR2000 snow thrower and other similar snow throwers. Replacement belts are Stens ST-265-478 (#265478) or Oregon 55-9300. Thanks very much.

Glad it helped...we carry that belt for 11.79, lists for 13.46. Good luck in the snow...were getting a lot of blowing and drifting snow this morning.
