The belt broke years ago and is missing.. I tried measuring the circumference around the motor spindle and fan pully and it looks to be around 58 inches, but it was awkward to measure and I wanted to be sure that I did not screw it up before I ordered a belt. Model # is Hunter BV30258. The house was built in 1956 and the fan is old enough that model # does not exist on the web as reference number anywhere. 
Does anyone  know what belt size I need for that unit, and is a there place that sells those belts you would recommend?  This is the closest thing I found online. https://www.amazon.com/PowerDrive-A56-4L580-Belt-Rubber/dp/B00E42COGI/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=58+inch+fan+belt&qid=1594878352&sr=8-2

you'll want a fractional horsepower belt as the belts used on rider mower decks are too stiff and aren't flexible enough.
as for size goes on the belt you'll want to size the belt so that its got a slight bit of slack so that it doesn't bind up the motor when the fan is starting up.

I usually get a rope & wrap it where the belt would run, then measure the rope. If you have an Ace Hardware nearby, they stock fractional horsepower belts. You can try one & exchange it if it is the wrong size.
