Default Electric Water Pump Install ????

I bought a Meziere Electric Water Pump to put on my 1996 ssei why I had the charger off (stock pump was leaking). I have everything back in place but I cant seem to find the correct belt and I cant seem to get the belt to not rub any way I put it on .... When your looking at the front of the engine, the upper motor mount, the arm that bolts under the power steering rubs the belt????

Anybody have pics of the routing for the stock belts or pictures of the belt routing after the pump install?????

Belt number???

You are going to need a belt 4" shorter with the EWP. The part # on a stock length Goodyear Gatorback belt is 4060940 and the belt you need carries the # 4060900 (Goodyear PN) and is 4" shorter.

Step back and give it a little time. I've done my belt atleast 10 times but once i put it on all *** backwards and couldn't figure it out to save my life. 15 minutes later i figured it out.

I believe you may have rubbing problems on the 96-99 era w/o pushing the power steering pump out away from the motor and swapping the accessory bracket. Although I have not yet tried to find out if it will fit, it appears that the lines are all off.

You drop from the tensioner to the crank instead of to the water pump.

Belt routing goes, alt, a/c, h.b., tensioner, p.*., back to the alt. I probably have a 1/4 inch between the belt going from the h.b. to the tensioner and the p.*. pump.
I know I have the belt length I used on here somewhere. I'll try and find it.

Edit- I used a 910K6 size belt on my L36. But the L67 may have an additional tensioner near the the coil packs?
