Hello everybody! I'm "oh so close" to buttoning this particular project up and moving on to the next (suspension). I think I might have a problem: I ordered my concourse correct belts from NPD. The part numbers are C5AE-8620-U (NPD #: 8629-19) for the P/S belt w/o A/C, and C4TE-8620-S (NPD #: 8620-50) for the alternator belt w/o A/C. Can someone verify that these numbers are correct for a 66'. The NPD catalog says they are correct, but they are both a half pulley diameter too short to fit. I have both the alternator and the P/S pump slid to the closest position to the center pulley possible. I cannot see how the belts can be stretched to fit without doing serious damage to parts and brackets. Help!!

Anyway, here are the pics:

Engine bay looks GREAT!!!!
On your belt question, are you sure you have the correct water pump pulley? It looks bigger than mine in the back near the pump.

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!!!
