unrelated, but reminds me of a story.

Dodge Different run 8 rib on my year Cummins. non-ac routing can be used to bypass a seized compressor (on a Saturday morning in BFE, MI on the shoulder of US23). But that only works with the correct alternator pulley: mine had been swapped to a 7 rib alt, and I didn't notice. That belt lasted 100 miles. I've had a 5 rib on that was "close enough" in length it ever since that trip.
