What size serpentine belt would i need on 2004 ram 3500 with a 5.7 liter hemi with a/c delete

fan belts are measured in millimeters and ribs a usual inked number would be 6pk240 meaning a 6 rib belt width with 240mm in length So know how many ribs you have from the old belt makes this easy to find the length by taking kite string and following the belt diagram to get the length granted when coming to tensioner you have to subtract some from the string or have someone hold tension about half the travel this will get you close the Gates belt number is K071013 (7 rib 101.8 inches) look for K070880 about 85-91 inches

1998 saturn serpentinebelt diagram

I had 4 saturns, 91-01, all of them had a little silver sticker in the engine bay with a belt diagram, also showing how to release tension to remove and replace the belt. further if you note the inside of the belt is ribbed, thus the belt goes around those pulleys which are ribbed, and the smooth back of the belt goes against those pulleys which are not ribbed.

How to install belt

There should be a serpentine belt routing diagram under the hood somewhere. If not, all I can tell you is that serpentine belts wrap around 3/4 of the diameter of each pulley; and the ribbed pulleys contact the inside ribbed part of the belt and smooth pulleys wrap around the outside non-ribbed part of the belt. Also it cannot be installed wrong because it's length will be too long or too short if not wrapped correctly. Hope this helps!

I need a diagram to reinstall my 2008 grand caravan serpentine belt. The sticker on the rad is missing

actually a diagram is not needed for a serpentine belt. It may look confusing at first, but remember that the flat side vs. the ribbed side goes to the respective pulleys that are flat or ribbed. That should make it easy to 'thread' the new belt on to the pulleys. Just put flat to flat and ribbed to ribbed until the last pulley, the tensioning pulley is encountered, which in many cases uses a breaker bar 1/2" square or a hex socket to 'release' tension and put the belt on easily with your fingers (don't let go of the breaker bar when you do this, of course).

Good luck on this belt installation.
