OK, so my PS pump goes out and i am still in need of a smog pump. So to get my rig up and running can i run a belt around my alternator, water pump and fan? If so does anyone know what size that is? Also, my AC is crapped out as well so there is no belt there either. Is it too much stress on the truck to just have one belt?

My 40 runs one belt around alternator, water pump and crank pulley. Seperate belt for air pump.

I am guessing you could use the same belt on the outer pulley if you just ask local parts store for an alternator belt for a 40...

You are in luck. You have two options:
The A/C belt will fit around the alt/water/main pullys. (Wierd, but true.)
A 15A 1230 belt (a bit thicker than the A/C belt) will also fit.

You are fine with one belt. Prolly could run forever this way.

YOu could also use some garden string or jute or something to measure what length you need then explain to the parts guy at your local store what you need. He'll probably let you just go try to match up the string to the belt .
