I used a Gates 7395 for years, but last time I had to go to the Gates 7390
as the cheap chinese knockoff's are in fact, too long.  Probably a
metric/english clash.

I looked up the belt Gates states my 73 should have a 7395 which is 10 mm x
39.5 " or 1003mm working length.

 I had a gates belt and it is a 7390 and on my car is a 15390 Napa both are
1/2" shorter . I have a spare 72 crank pulley and it is the same depth and
width as the one in my car.

 I can adjust the 7390 and 15390 tight or with the 5/8" slack between the
pulleys . I can't recall why I got the 1/2" shorter belts all I recall is
one was from Napa and that's what they said it used.

 I'm afraid if I get the gates 7395 it will be to long .

 Does anyone know what they use?
