Belt Replacement

I bought my first ford, a '95 Probe GT about a week ago. Last night on my way home from work the alternator belt snapped. I purchased a replacement from the local AutoZone to replace it at 39.5" w/ AC. When i tried to install, the belt was about an inch too large. Anyone know the appropriate size for this belt.

Re: Belt Replacement

okay, belt wasn't really the problem, something more serious is. My crankshaft pulley has all the little ribs wore off on it... so the belt won't stay on. I am now wandering if there is any way to replace the harmonic balancer without pulling the engine as most repair manuals show. if so please tell me how

Re: Belt Replacement

got that problem fixed, then it happened again to the replacement... realized the problem was a bad bearing in the alternator pulling the belt outward. already got that fixed as well. thanx for the input.
