Thanks for the fast reply. I ended up with a 61Ē fan belt that wrapped around the crank,water pump and PS pulleys. Can I run that. The belt thatís called for is 51Ē that one is way to short.

Gates 7525 is roughly 53 inches and is the correct belt for the application. As Chappie said, crank pulley to PS pulley for your Scout. There's no need to reinvent the wheel or over think this. What you've proposed is not the proper method.

Thanks scoutboy I have that belt length it was on the crank to the PS but it doesnít fit correctly. The PS pump is rotated all the way toward the block and I still have to use a pry bar to get the belt in. There is no belt adjustment. I donít get it.should I can get a belt alittle longer and run it like you said. Or leave it with the belt wrapping around the crank and water pump pulley and PS. thanks

Any way you can get a picture up so we can see what's going on? There is a belt tension adjustment, but who knows what kind of whizzbang, booty-fab farm-fix you might have going on under the hood.
