I am working on the headstock now, and was wondering whether anyone hadGoogle serpentine belt dimensions and you'll find places to look up belts by how many ribs and the length.
Figuring out the width is simple. There are a few standard rib sizes, much like single V belts, and total belt width is rib X number of ribs.
For the 1914 Sears Expert 13" I think I got one made by Bando, using a PDF catalog to find one 10 ribs wide and the length it needed. Turned out to be one used for some type of pump on a White/Volvo semi truck engine.
Once you have a part number for a belt with the dimensions you need, poke that into Amazon, eBay, various auto parts store websites or even just Google it - until you come up with the best price.
