Probably a clutch made by Comet. If you can find the clutch numbers (I think they're stamped on the bell shaped piece on the engine part of the clutch), you can match a belt to it from a book or online. You'll have to use a comet belt. There are no other belts that work with this system...it's a special belt. It is a centrifugal clutch. It's also a variable drive.
