Went on line to order a p/s belt and found about 10 different sizes. This is just a stock 66 289 with no A/C. Anyone have a idea of what size I need? Maybe I'll go to an auto parts store and keep bringing it back until it's right. LOL!

I run a Gates 7495 belt, which translates to 49 1/2". That should work assuming you are running standard size pulleys.

Does it run straight off the crank or around the water pump pulley? I would assume that's the only option to consider. I measured with a seamstress fabric tape measure on the diameter on the old belt and got 50 inches so sounds correct.

It wraps all three pulleys. Crank, water pump and PS.
