Smile AirBox Drain Kit

Installed an AirBox Drain Cannister Kit on my 83 PT40. No more embarrassing little dribbles.

Default Belts...

Sorry for being lazy...

Can someone tell me the belt numbers for the alternator belts on a Silver 6v92TA?

And maybe a good source for engine coolant hoses??

Thanks!

I believe these are the numbers:

Dayco 5141876 or 42-1017

Gates 7290

I would think NAPA would have the hoses.

Ryan,
Suggestion...Find a hose supplier. Buy the silicone hose, and the clamps made for the silicone hose.
