For those asking about shorter belts.
Both v-belts and micro-v (serpentine) belts are made to a set of standard cross-sections in Vs they are like A, B, C, D or measured in inches across the outer face of the belt.

I am not endorsing this second one they just have a nice diagram.

I used to work for a big name belt maker and we made every profile in lengths from around 8" circumference up to 144" in half inch increments.

The auto parts store should have a set of notched templates that fit into the pulleys and another for measuring the belts.

I have one around here somewhere and will upload a pic if I find it.
Just trying to save a little more money!
