Default What Gatorback belt with 3.4" pulley?

Anyone know the exact part number Gatorback belt I need with a 3.4" pulley? I had an Intense installer install the pulley today, but I only had a stock length belt...so she'* a little too close for comfort by the tensioner. So, whats the part number for the belt I need? I believe its an inch shorter than stock right?

If I remember correctly, stock is about 72.4", so a 71.5" belt should be perfect. By the way, we list all these applications on the Belts page of our website for your convenience.

Hope this helps.

I'm guessing the GB6-715 is it right?

Ack, already ordered PCM, guess I make a second order.

Oh Taylor...the ride home was amazing!

Kyle, keep the stock length and throw on a ZZP oversized idler. That way you don't have to remember the length, and you get better belt wrap circumference.

IT wouldn't fit Will, I had one handy and there was NO WAY one would fit on Kyles SSEi, the belts would rub for sure. He needs a new belt that one had a lot of play, not crazy style, just would of liked to see it tighter, than an Idler could of fit.

We found out today that a Thrasher CAI box will fit in his car.

Just call Scott Monday and ask him to ship it with the PCM. Shouldn't be a problem. 715 is what you want.

Doesn't anyone know the full part number for the belt? I thought I could just go to an Autozone and pick one up (I did on the 94, but then again that was a stock size replacement).

It appeared that way on mine as well, until I actually installed it (my car was the test fit for the ZZP idler in a Series 1). Many GP'* and a couple Bonnevilles here are running the 3.4 with ZZP'* idler. It'* an illusion at first, but reality works.

Granted it'* much more important on a Series 1 running a 2.2" pulley as far as belt wrap is concerned, but still not a bad idea for the 94/95 or S2 L67'*.
