    i can't find a longer fan belt that is as wide as the original(went to all the local parts stores). i'm looking for a belt around 50" in circumference. how long is the belt for a 2f with a smog pump? this power steering swap has been a real hassle :mad:

    AutoZone has belts all the way up to 76" in each style. Most autoparts shops should be able to help you out.

    Any power transmission house or Grainger should have them also.

    I got a longer one from NAPA, back when I thought I was putting in A/C. It is 61 1/4 inches (by 17mm, the standard). Made by Gates.

    all the local parts stores can't get (so they say) anything the width of my belt only narrower. i can't even get an orignal belt (only from toyota). someone said a truck store, they would have wider belts? (like a heavy duty mechanic shop)
