Default Perkins engine belt

Anyone know the specs on Perkins engine and water pump belt? The files on WOG say 40". Anyone know the width? I'm not near where I can measure the existing. If anyone can confirm a part number that would be great!

Thanks for the belt #’s! I tore into this today. Water pump is locked up! Looks like I’m in the market for a new pump! Anyone have one they would part with? Not sure if parts are available or if there is a rebuild kit. It’s a pretty stout little pump! I’m also going to need a new pulley. I had a bonehead moment with a pulley puller! I didn’t realize it was a cast pulley!

I found the parts manuals and I have the engine numbers. Anyone know of a good source for parts?

This is what I got from ebay this summer for mine. Has the pulley.

I learned you need to take the base plate off the old one and stick it on the new one...

Thanks! When you said to take the base plate off I wasn't sure what you meant. I had to go back out and look. The base plate is still on the motor. Were you able to source a gasket for the base plate?

I made up a a gasket and it sealed up ok, at least for a 2 hour test run. I did run a bead of Right Stuff around the edges of the gaskets. I don't like leaks.

Thanks for everyone's input. Thanks Craig for the ebay link. I ordered it Sunday and Installed on Wed!

All back together and working great! I did get the Carquest 15410 belt. I may have to go to a 40" belt. The 41" belt has very little room to tighten it further in my set-up. It's tight now. Not sure how much it will stretch.
