I need the part # for a shorter A/C belt, maybe about 1/2" shorter than stock.
Thanks guys, that's exactly what I'm looking for.Gates Racing K040360RB belt is 36.0"
Gates K040358 belt is 35.8"
Gates K040355 belt is 35.5"
Gates K040353 belt is 35.3"
If the tensioner is loose and the belt is jumping off, try replacing the stock tensioner with a Goodyear PN: 49276 replacement. The stock unit gets sloppy and loose after a year or so...
I am running the 35.3" belt, but my a/c pulley on the crank is slightly smaller than stock (ATI 8-rib conversion pully/hub)
Okay, I put the 35.3" on and it was super snug but perfect. Also, just replace the tensioner while you are in there...Thanks guys, that's exactly what I'm looking for.
I installed the ATI balancer that came with the new HOB V2 system and the stock A/C belt is a little too slack.
good question, i was wondering that myself when installing.What tool you use to remove the ATI balancer? I have the GM tool for the stock pulley, but it doesn't look like it will work for this one
I run the Gates/Napa 1/2" shorter belt on the IW Balancer. It is because the belt will try to walk off the tapered surface of the balancer. The size is the same just the IW balancer doesnt have enough of a lip to retain the belt at the stock length.For some reason I had to install a shorter A/C Belt when I did my Innovators West 10% Overdrive Crank Pulley. It even came with paperwork that stated the A/C Pulley Size remains stock, but I had to find a shorter belt. Now that I think about it, this might be the issue I'm now having with my A/C. Maybe it's being underdriven. That would explain why I needed a shorter belt. Now I need to talk to Joe and find out for sure.
You'll need this for the pinning kit:What tool you use to remove the ATI balancer? I have the GM tool for the stock pulley, but it doesn't look like it will work for this one and what crank pinning kit did you use also?
Thanks for the offer, I may take you up on that.You'll need this for the pinning kit:
Although I have it already and if you need to use it I have no problem with letting people use it (just cover shipping) instead of spending $$$ for it. I may even have an extra pin but it looks like P/N 958025 ($2.36) is what a pins cost anyway.
