My system uses a single serpentine belt .the crankshaft drives the alternator and the hydraulic pump (or AC pump - cannot tell). There are two idlers and a tensioner. The radiator is side mount and uses an hydraulically powered fan.
There are only six components - the crank, alternator, air conditioner pump, two idlers and the tensioner.The belt failed which is why I am investigating proper routing.
The unit is a 2005 Beaver Patriot Thunder with a 525 HP CAT C13 engine and Allison 4000 transmission.Hope this helps.

The routing I provided is the only one that comes up for the C13 engine.

I will close the link and opt out for someone else that may have another on for you since it is not correct. It is the only one I have and if another tech has another one, they can assist.

Good day!
