1992 chevrolet corvette: my serpentine belt fried itself..jerks

Customer Question

i bought a 1992 chevrolet corvette.......that had a underdrive pulley put on the crank......i have receipts but no info on the size of the pulley. i initially discovered that the crank pulley had been replaced after i hit a deer carcass at 80 miles/hour at 4 in the morning and my serpentine belt fried itself afterward. the jerks at corvette clinic in san jose calif. refused to help me with the manufacturer's name or location. instead they wanted to sell me a new set of pulleys to replace all pulley's on the motor. at this point i have measured the length and activated the tensioner with a utility strap in place of a serpentine belt...and came up with a measuresment of 64 inches....3 inches shorter than a stock gm/6 ribbed dual sided serpentine belt. where can i find a new belt?

    Expert:  Bill Barrow replied 4 years ago.
    Any parts store can sell you a belt 3" shorter than stock. Ask for a DK060645. The stock number is DK060674 and here's how that breaks down. TheDK06 tells the parts guy it's a 6 rib serpentine. The 674 means it's 67.4" long. So to get a shorter belt by 3" we subtract 3 from 67 to get 64. They most likely won't have a 64.4" belt so we round it to 645 for a 64 and a half inch belt. This is a gates number by the way.
