    Matched belts can be found with Gates or Napa. They typically will have a red tape around the set. Usually you have to go to a very large store or for NAPA at a distribution warehouse store main counter.

    The way to tell a matched set is they are cut from the same cord or production. To verify this, check the digits/code after the part number like nbb12 or something like that. Then there is usually a number to tell you which piece it was off the cord like 12 or 13 etc.. Matching numbers are nice but as long as the cord production is the same, they will stretch and work as a "matched set"

    Usually matched set means same lot number, same run, same turning, and spaced next to each other on the spool.

    For now the screaming angry cat under my hood has been silenced, but for safety and reliablility I just want new belts and hoses and such.

    Thanks Juan

    Went over my spare parts corner.

    Bought a used supposedly take-out wiper motor assembly. Problem is when I plugged it in, it worked perfectly. Straight to the spare working parts box!
    Bought some u-fix blinker activators/switches. Fixed them and now I have several spare sets.
    Bought an aftermarket 24 Volt blinker relay. Tested and works. Supposedly it will work with LED without issue. I have a busted blinker relay box, and I will empty the box, insert the solid state relay, and I will soon be ready for the spare parts box.
    Bought a few "take-out" KDS green boxes. Need a source for electric parts cause Radio Shack is gone. Things like Mosfets and resistors and "stuff" need replacement, but I digress. A few of the boxes are labeled "take-outs", but they function well. Those went straight to the spare parts box.
    Getting ready for the 700R4 swap. Found the transmission kick-down bracket. It had gone AWOL, but found where my wifey hid it.
    I have a few spare LED lights for Heeps. Made a couple of plugs that terminate in Packard connectors. Labeled the wires 17, 18, 91 and now in the spare parts box.

    Also, in unrelated news, finally opened up clothes boxes from the move to the new house [a year ago], and set up my closet. Now wifey has her very own closet, and I finally found my Fall and Winter clothes/shoes/suits/draws.

    Now off to clear out some of the mudroom, and then paperwork.

    All-in-all, not a bad day, except the Giants and the Jets lost. At least the Yankees might get something done this year. [Of course, others might feel differently about my sports choices.]

    Best,

    T

    765R4 built to take 800WHP. Should be good for occasional camping and off road.

    Should fit without new driveshafts and other major stressors.
