V-4 "fan" belt for a converted cooling system

Hi, all...I have some questions that I'm going to put up here as opposed to the vSaab Yahoo group. I'm used to most of my questions being greeted with a "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard" response and I don't want to intrude on that group's two-stroke reveries...

My question now is if anyone knows a decent belt to use when the fan pulley is removed and the belt is just turning the water pump and alternator and the balance shaft pulley. I shredded my last one, and the replacement I picked up by measurement is just off a bit. I got the length ok, but the width of the "V" and the depth are just off. I try to keep the belt as loose as possible to avoid yanking on that bearing, and I'm not convinced there isn't a little slippage.

Thanks in advance for your advice...my next question will concern the various techniques, charms and immersion into the dark arts used in re-inserting those charming spring-bowed monster e-clips that retain the rear brake cylinders. My work-around will probably be met with horror...but that's another discussion. Cheers...
