Can't track down the belt specs RV I just bought. 1988

Customer Question

Can't track down the belt specs for an RV I just bought. 1988 Cruise Air II by Georgie Boy. Has 460 Ford engine, was driven over on "loaner" belts. Previous owner unavailable to provide belt part #s or specs
JA: Which belt is acting up? And when was it last changed?
Customer: Both belts on the engine are gone. Alt and fan belts. I have nothing to reference, an alternator belt was slapped on just long enough to drive it over.
JA: What is the model of your '88 RV?
Customer: Cruise Air II
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, diy. So far I have searched for belt specs. Unsuccessfully. I can do the work, but not without the proper belts.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I believe that covers it, it's as much as I know at present

Does this have a smog pump or not?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Has smog pump. It is not hooked up (not necessary for SC). I plan on repairing that as well, do you have advice for that as well?
Expert:  Randall replied 7 months ago.

Not to leave it on there in most cases. Does it have an A/C or is that a separate belt?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I don't think you understood me. The previous owner disabled the smog pump. Because they don't require emissions checks in South Carolina. I plan get the smog system back up and running.

I don't know how to answer that question... We're there various configurations for the 88 Georgie Boy Cruise Air II s?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I can take photos of the engine, but not until tomorrow evening.
Expert:  Randall replied 7 months ago.

I got that........and will look it up based on that. Give me an hour or so.

Expert:  Randall replied 7 months ago.

Need to narrow this down some...........too many variations. How long was the one you took off or a part number off of that? Other belt type and number of ribs (if any) and I can narrow his down.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I am receiving this RV with no belts. There is nothing to reference.
Expert:  Randall replied 7 months ago.

I see one belt should be a Gates K060495 which is slightly over 50" long. I need to know the pulley design for the other one. No listings for a Georgie Boy. Only a Ford 53 chassis for that year, but there are a number of variations based on the equipment.

Were you able to get any photos of this? That would narrow this down.
