RE: 5000CSTQ - V-Belt Question
The width should be critical - this determines how thet belt rides on the
pulley. The length should be adjustable within reason - the 825 will be about
1 inch longer than the 800 - this could be a lot to try to adjust out. The 915
vs 913, IMHO, is insignificant.

Subject: 5000CSTQ - V-Belt Question
I am looking for insight into the correct v-belt sizes for my '86 CSTQ
to eliminate squealing/slipping. The belts are tensioned properly
so I'm thinking it's the size.
Neither Bentley nor Hayes has sizes. The owner's manual indicates:
Alternator 9.5 x 800
A/C 12.5 x 915
Steering 12.5 x 960
I can't find these locally.
Just got a shipment of stuff from GPR including some Contitech as follows:
Alternator 10 x 825
A/C 13 x 913
Steering 13 x 992
Will the real sizes please stand up. Where can I get 'em?
'86 5KCSTQ 204K miles and running strong but occasionally "belting"
out a tune...love it!
