As "OldHomeNewT" state, record the belt numbers. I typically just write this info and other stuff such as how much oil the unit takes (and what kind of oil) right on the machine itself. Use a sharpie or a paint pen and write the info on a plastic shroud or on a painted surface. Do the same with your lawnmower(s) also.

Take a digital photo of the belt placement for referral.

This was a very timely article. I found in the magazine the week *after* my blower broke a belt (10+ years old). Mine is exactly like the blower in the pictures, and uses two belts. I replaced both of them at the same time, since I already had it apart.

One tip: Early in the life of your blower, record the part number off of the belts and put it somewhere safe. The parts store couldn't find my particular belts in the parts lists, so we had to guess on ordering the replacements because my blower shredded the old belt and the numbers were no longer readable.
