    Sure Doesn't sound like summit customer service... in any event probably wouldn't hurt to call march and get the info from them. As info Summit will price match anyone and free 2 day shipping to most anywhere in the US, can't beat that service

    Belts can be frustrating. May have to just guess to get a starting point if no one helps with info. Took 7 trips to finally get all my belts.

        Sometimes I think the tech people don't know anything unless it's on the screen in front of them.

          You can get pretty close on belt size by installing all the pulleys & running a string around them. Measure that string & find a serpentine about 1" shorter (to compensate for slack taken up by tensioner pulley)..... will get you down to a max TWO trips to the parts store.

                I just spotted this thread, after replying to your earlier pm. Aldal's above post, illustrates the exact same belts, I used in my March conversion kit setup, back in 2013. Any Dayco supply house or Summit, should be able to help you with part numbers DAC-5060436 and DAC-5060410. PS: Remember to double check your Alternator Mounting Bracket Bolt Lengths, supplied in March's Conversion Kit, to ensure the proper thread depth. As I mentioned to you earlier in pm, the longest bolt in my March Billet Aluminum Alternator bracket kit, was 1/2" Too Short and soon failed following installation. The problem was solved by purchasing a longer replacement bolt locally. I repeated this info here, for the benefit of other FBBO readership who might be considering this setup. Again, have fun and take care.
