[quote="Bruce (VA)"](quoted from post at 04:49:08 06/17/13) Loosen the tension adjustment & push the alternator all the way in. Then pull it out about 1". Get the wife's fabric measuring tape & measure it. Or use a piece of string. Take the old belt to NAPA, Advance, etc & tell them you want one of that diameter in X inches.

Little tip on B belts...
B= Add 3" to belt number (Example B88 = 91" Outside Circumference)

A front mt with a alt takes a B42 (45" outside circumference)

So if his is 45" belt he needs a B41 (44" OC) Its a mess but the way they do it...

To the original poster coolant absorbs the heat air takes it away...

Thanks for the info. I was using a 5L-440 which is the belt sold here for front mount/alternator. I think I will try both the 42 inch and 43 inch belt. I measured but it could go either way. I'll see which is a better fit and return the other.

I found this handy conversion chart between 5L and B belts. It is exactly as you say - B#+3= outside inches (these are obviously for kevlar belts)

I have read that B and 5L are the same dimensions except that B belts are 7/16" thick and 5L are only 3/8" thick.

So three questions:
1. Should I use 5L or B?
2. Should I go with Kevlar or does it offer no benefit?
2. Cogged or smooth?
