Why dont you call the place you git it from? I would guess theyd know eh? I went with Powerbond through Texas Speed and they set me right up with both belt sizes.

Main Accessory Belt

&

Air Conditioning

Gatorback #4040410 = Metric #4KP1040 For the Air Cond Belt if it's 25% underdrive too.

Gatorbacks available at Summit Racing.

From SLP: C5/C6 Corvette
Main Belt: Gates 6PK1900 or Equivalent
Accessory Belt: Gates 4PK1040 or Equivalent

You'll have to cross reference them if you don't want gates.

okay, so i've done a little more research and it turns out that the

Gatorback 4040420 is 42 inches and the Gatorback 4040405 is 40.50 inches.

if the required length is 41 inches, which is it better to go with?

The Gatorback #4040410 is 41" and fits perfectly.

The stock Gatorback # is 4060798 so I would assume it's 79.8 " long.

Sorry! Not reading very well today. The stock AC belt number is a Gatorback #4040420 and it's 42" effective length and 42.75" outside length. You're right, you'd have to use a lot of muscle to get that one on all the accessory pulleys.

you know its ridiculous that you buy a part from a company like SLP and they cant even tell you the correct belt size that is needed. i spoke to Slp today and they're telling me to go measure it.

I HAVE NO MECHANICAL SKILLS AND MY MECHANIC IS OVER AN HOUR AWAY AND CANNOT ORDER THE PARTS ON SATURDAY WHEN IM GETTING THE WORK DONE.

This is the last thing i'll buy from SLP.
