If you have a 66 you have a Ford pump.

The 64 1/2 and early 65 Mustangs sometimes came with an Eaton system.

Measure the length of belt you need and get a longer belt

An HBA-AC is a Ford style pump (also known as a Thompson pump since it was made by TRW).
Measure or match up your belt. Even the belts and belt lengths listed in the Ford dealers parts book will not guarantee a proper fit. One of the first thinhs I learned at Ford was that it was almost useless trying to look up belts and U-joints using a Ford parts book. It was much quicker and accurate to match them up.
