Where'* the least expensive place to buy new belts?
And do you guys know cross-reference part numbers for all the different brands of belts?
When I bought the last set for my '92 sse */c, I found that one of the belts from the auto parts store didn't fit the car so I had to bring it back and get a slightly longer belt. The difference in size between what they sold me and what actually fit was only about 1/2" in length or so...not much, but even 1/2" too short won't fit. Do any of you know a range of lengths that'll fit, and how to decode the length from the part number?
I think the generic belts for the '92/'93 */c engines are the 610k6 (61.0"? with 6 ribs) and the 865k6 (86.5"? with 6 ribs). I know the GM numbers too, but it'd cost less to get belts from somewhere other than the dealer, right?
