    Well, that would be easier to install!

    I went with the part number posted in post #29

    G.I.G.O.?

    I guess the gates K060355 would fit too at 35.56"/903mm.
    When I install new belts I often have to back the tensioner bolt off all the way and push the alternator til the wiring is squished past the intake manifold.

    If you get a wild hair one night, I call dibs on at least the condenser hose. Could be convinced to pay money for all of it it need be. LMK.
