Long story short one of my idler pullies seized up, smelled a burning rubber smell as I was driving and then noticed my battery light turn on with loss of boost, immediately pulled over expecting a belt problem and sure enough it was obliterated due to the seized pulley.

Ended up having to throw a stock idler back on for now and using a 6 rib 74.5 belt just to get me home with the alternator working.

My question is where is the best place for me to order a good 8 rib 74.5 belt for my permanent fix? And a single idler as well.

Thanks

Gates Green Stripe or Goodyear Gatorback are excellent choices. I like RockAuto.com for their great prices. As mentioned, eBay and Amazon are options. AutoZone, too.
