Belt size on 1999 Alpine 40 with 350 HP 8.3?

Hey folks,

I first want to thank all of you for the great advice and help as I go through the 1999 Alpine 40 FDS we purchased. I think I see light at the end of the tunnel. I am still dealing with a short that looks to be in the HWH controller box. I'm hoping for the best but I think a new controller box looks to be in my future. This unit has the 350 HP 6CTA 8.3 ISC engine and I want to replace the serpentine belt and the I think ac pump belt? Does anyone know the size or part #s of these belts?

Thanks for all of the help.

Are you missing your belts? The number should be clear on there, if not, take them to NAPA and they can match them up. If you don't have them, grab the cummins engine numbers off the dataplate - on the fuel pump side of the engine on the rocker cover, and call Cummins. I can give you the numbers off of my 8.3C but I hesitate in doing so since our pulleys could be different in diameter.

belts

We use Goodyear Gatorback 4080680 (8PK1725) for the main and 17474 (13AV1205) for the AC. Bought them on E-Bay.
Make sure the pully is clean. We had a tiny rock trapped in the pully and it damaged the last belt. Also check alignment.

Those are the belts I use on my 275hp so I guess they were standard on all Alpines until they changed to the ISL.

Thank you so much for all of your help!

I took our Alpine down to West Sac Truck Lube in West Sacramento. Thanks to Engineer Mike for the suggestion to go to a Truck Lube place like Speedco. A much better price. They replaced all of the filters including Oil, Fuel, Air and Oil & Fuel on the generator. They lubed the whole unit and since they were a mobile Truck repair company and it was our first time there they did a quick check of belts, brakes, brake fluid, trans fluid, tires and more. The good news is the belts brakes pads rotors & calipers looked like they were recently replaced.(I am still getting a second set of belts just to have. Thanks for all of the help with that) the fluids looked very fresh also so I am going to put off the trans fluid service for a couple of months.($160) They did all of this for $385!

If you plan on keeping your coach for a long time you may want to upgrade to Transynd when you do the transmission. It will cost a lot more than you were quoted for Dexron but worth it in my view.

IIWMI'd change the belts out for the new ones & save the oldies for spares. 2 advantages- first, you are sure you have fresh belts running. Second, you get a live fire exercise at replacing the belts to figure out what tools you need on board in case you have to do this by the side of the road some day

It might be an idea to leave the old serpentine belt tied back behind the a/c compressor so you don't have to remove the V-belt should you need to replace it in an emergency. Of course I thought of this AFTER I put my old belt in the basement.
