Man I fought this problem all last year, so I finally went and got my third belt in one year and the kid at O'rileys says there is two different sizes, he said the shorter one was about .9" shorter than the other size if I remember right, so I got the "shorter" belt, I didnt measure either belt or put the new one up to the old one, but It was a little tighter when putting it on, its been two months now with now sqweek, I guess time will tell

ive had good luck putting motorcraft dielectric grease compound on both sides of the belt. put a dab on both sides and rub it around a 1 inch area, start it up and it will transfer to the rest of the belt. has taken care of minor belt noises for me.
