    Where can I order a custom serpentine belt for HO alt?

    I checked the local pep boys, autozone and oriley auto parts.
    Everyone has the belt 2" shorter which I was told will not work.

    .5-1" smaller than stock belt is my goal.

    Also a custom belt would be an astronomical amount of money, I'm asking for vehicle info to see if I have any insight for you on the model

    The parts store i went to when I got quad alts ordered me a custom belt. Any auto parts store should be able to order you a custom length belt. It only took two days for me to get mine too, which surprised me.

    Otherwise, you could get a larger than stock idler pulley, or a smaller than stock idler pulley and get the 2" shorter belt.

    Re: Where can I order a custom serpentine belt for HO alt?

    Yea this too /\ @adulbrich
    I have seen issues with certain models where there is not already the shorter size in production, and they want a ton of money to make a new size, an unreal amount of money, VW's for example on some models, double sided belt, theres no options for certain models available at all and to make a completely new one not in production is unreal expensive

    I thought so too, I asked each one if they custom order or know where to find one... None of TH m could help me.

    How would I select a smaller idler pulley?

    With an 07 frontier, there might not be any. You'll have to do some searching online.

    I'm surprised you couldn't get a custom belt. I got a custom belt for my 2007 Silverado. They could do anything in half inch increments. It ended up being ridiculously long for four alternators, but only cost me $80

    Yeah I was too since many people pointed me to my local autozone. I specifically asked each one of i can special order one. All they did was punch in different size belt numbers

    No problem. Your current belt specs:
    Number Of Ribs: 7
    Width (In): 0.947 Inch
    Outside Circumference (In): 87.280 Inch

    The belt I mentioned:
    Number Of Ribs: 7
    Width (In): 0.947 Inch
    Outside Circumference (In): 86.220 Inch

    So it's roughly 1" shorter. The next size down I could locate would be 85.xx inches and be a tad shorter.

    Hopefully this helps.

    Finally got around to installing the belt. It was very tight but I got it on. My only concern is the bounce I get on the pulley, is it something to worry about?

    Re: Where can I order a custom serpentine belt for HO alt?

    I would double check where your tensioner is at when installed. They have a range they are supposed to be in, and if it was a tight fit, you may be putting too much tension on the pulleys, which could potentially damage them. I ran into the same problem as you and the only option I could find was a tight fit as well, but I still had a little play on the belt so I thought I was good. Well, it actually wound up bending the pulley on the alt, which caused it to break right off. The belt, being intact, didn't just get spit out like a broken belt would. Instead it got wrapped around components, broke the tensioner, destroyed idler pulley, and did some damage to my ground cable, fan shroud, and fuel line. After that, I found out what the acceptable range of travel for the tensioner was and shopped around until I found a belt which put the tensioner in that range.
