Fan belt

Is there a place I can obtain a fan belt simply by giving the vendor the diameter and circumference of the fan belt?

The last time I purchased a new fan belt for my '60 Corvette I had to take the old belt to a few places but I know the counter people didn't appreciate the task....

I did record the Canadian Tire part number but it's been lost when the diskette I had it on corrupted a few years ago....

Thanks kindly....

Kenmo

Does the engine differ then what was originally equipped in the Corvette? I would start off with year/make/model and then engine size. I don't forsee the parts store having trouble going by that information. In the end, your way would work... but it will be time consuming with many trips back/forth to the store after checking fitment. Good luck

Dayco belts are relatively easy to find, and the length is obvious.

I think a stock 350 belt will be be a Dayco 15 series (which refers to the depth/profile of the V in the pulley)
Belt number 15545 - 54.5 inches

If you have a deeper V pulley it is a different series (I have this type of pulley on a replacement AC compressor)
17525 52.5 inches

60 Corvette belt

I have an old Goodyear belts and hose book and it calls for a 13561 belt. Not to many places carry the 13 series belts anymore. I might be able to round you up a good quality belt that is made in the US. I'll look to see if I have one and let you know in a couple days. The 15 series belts that most places sell will ride up out of your pulleys some. Leave me a message. Myron

Tossed the generator over 20 years ago in favor of an Delco alternator (3 wire). Also had to use different brackets to get the alternator on....

Thanks for all the replies....
