I ordered and received two belts for the supercharger from a stude vendor, both were in a paper sleeve which said Gates 7565. Since my supercharger was off being rebuilt I just put them aside. I assumed that they were both the same and correct. Went to install them today and one was 7565 and the other 7545. One was too long, the other too short.

Does anyone have good part numbers for the R2 supercharger belts? I want to source them locally if I can and avoid this shipping back and forth.

7545 should be right, there's a lot of tension on those bad boys. 7555 if you have a 8" crank pulley ("high output" setup)
