yeah, they should have those belts. for the sake of time, buy several belts in .5" increments then take back the ones that don't fit.

Yea man.. if you have a short drive to the interview and a good battery, you'll make it w/o a belt (if absolutely neccassary). Just watch that temp gauge and mind the lack of power steering.
thats what i was thinking or if you could just get a belt that you could route around the w/p alt and crank pulley that would work for a little while

I knew thats what you were getting at, I quoted you to reinforce that... but I quoted the wrong post:eek:... I'm pretty sick and doped up on Tylenol right now, haha, you know, the real hard stuff.
