what size belt for 4.2?

Im removing my AC system on my 89 and cant find a number for a belt without AC. Anyone know the gates number for the serpentine belt for without AC but with power steering?

Best bet is to measure. Verify the correct routing ,run a string around and measure it. The belts part numbers pretty much universally contain the length in inches as part of the number. I difference of an inch is a pretty big amount so you might take more than one try to get it correct.

This. It took me several tries to get a belt for mine. Still a little loose

What size did you come up with? And what about a part number? I'm sure someone here has already done it and has the exact right size and the part number for it. After all this is a Jeep and is usually topless lol.

I finally got around to looking for a belt that will work. K060750 which is 75 5/8" gates belt but it is a little loose. A 75" wouldnt even go on but i think the magic number might be K060747 which is 75 3/8". Ill try it out later tho unless someone else wants to give it a shot and report back.
