Ok guys. Got a B series alternator since my D series alt crapped out. Buddy had it laying around and its in mint shape. It bolted up fine to the mounts and connectors all worked great. Only thing is my Z6 alt belt is too short. Anyone ever do this and what kinda belt did you use. I cant find anything about lengths of belts from d to b's. Would an integra belt be longer than the z6's?

Yea, I just wrapped a string around where the belt would go, and then measured the string. The car I bought had a stupid underdrive pulley on it that was a lot smaller diameter than the stock.

Yep! Just use a string or something like that and ask to go behind the counter to find what you need. They usually don't say no.

I would block that sacktop, tell you I'm the manager and swiftly kick you in the ass, lmao. Sorry, had to say it since the necessary answers have been given in here.
