<x-flowed>I know this has been discussed, and the consensus seems to be to use the Gates 7395 fan belt. I went to my FLAPS to get one and the size seems too long.
From what I was able to find in the archives, the belt should be 10mm x 1000mm, which is listed along with the Gates 7395.
Here are the various Gates numbers and their sizes:
7385 3/8 x 39 1/8 9.5mm/10mm x 995mm 7390 3/8 x 39 5/8 9.5mm/10mm x 1005mm 7395 3/8 x 40 1/2 9.5mm/10mm x 1020mm
So, from my data taken from the belts, it appears that the 7390 is closer to stock than the 7395.
I checked another shop, and other belts use the Gates number for their sizing as well, so if Gates brand is not available, they should be able to cross reference to it.
