Default Evosport Pulley Kit

Hi,

I'm hoping that someone in the community can help me out with a problem I've currently got.
I've been running the Evosport performace pulley kit (water pump, power steering pump and alternator) on my car for years, and it's been working flawlessly.
A little while ago I had to replace my alternator, and took the cheap way out and bought a non-OEM unit and installed it in the car.
The unit was bolt on, but on the time of installation I didn't realize that the replacement alternator had a slightly longer axle than the OEM, resulting in the alternator pulley to stick out barely 4mm longer (1/6") than the rest of the pulleys.
No need to explain - over a bit of time this has resulted in a damaged pulley (worn down knife-edge on the inner side of the pulley) and torn serpentine belt.
As there is no retailer for this kit in Norway, I've been trying to get in contact with some US-suppliers without luck.
I'm replacing the alternator with OEM and OEM pulley again.
Now seeing that these kits are sold without the alternator pulley, i was hoping that someone could tell me the what length of the serpentine belt supplied with these kits are (water pump and power steering pump only). For info the belt i had supplied with my kit was a 6 PK 1538, so i would expect it to be slightly shorter...
Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance guys!

I believe the 1538 part tells you the length in mm.

I would go to a parts store and see if they have a 6pk and a smaller number. You can take a piece of string, route it as a belt and then measure the length also.

Hope this helps somewhat.

yes 1538 is the length in mm. Funny thing is my UUC kit comes w/ 1540mm and its the one w/o the alternator pulley.

Yes, was thinking about pulling a string or piece of thread around to see the length...should still be a bit of room for the belt tensioner to work on, so maybe this will be no issue what so ever. Thanks though

Yes, I've also seen pictures of two piece kits with either 1538 or 1540 belts, so was in doubt if this was just for illustration only or if it was the actual belt supplied with the kit. UUC may run bigger diameter pulleys on their kits, but that's beyond my knowledge.
I see next step down on Contitech's belts are 1515, so might not be so bad. Thanks

Yes, that's the one I use with RE kit. Keep in mind, the tensioner will pick up any slack, so a belt doesn't have to be exactly 1538mm, but within a range that can be accommodated by the tensioner.

1540mm would be fine too. As 1536 would or some other number within several mms, I imagine.

The number before the length, e.i. "6"pk refers to the ribs, so 5 for a/c belt (829mm length fyi) and 6 for assec. drive (stock is like 14xxmm).
