Not a problem Brett but my mistake was that my belt isn't an inch & a half longer but actually less than a quarter inch longer so I know it will work and for a spare and I have that exact part# Belt in a Napa Belt you can have also so it's up to you and check out my belts in my thread and you'll see the exact part# on the Napa one but as I said brother you can have all 4 for $25 if it helps you out?

Turns out that my buddy Gary who runs a fleet service shop had a bunch of the correct NAPA belts in
stock (Ford F250 or 350 takes the same belt) and since I always fix his PC's for free I got me free belts!

Woot!

So I'm back up and running and so far no issues, I found nothing wrong with any of the pulleys and
the new belt is tracking straight as can be. I guess We'll see if it lasts!

Cool, glad to hear that Brett but you might want to take a closer look at the idler bracket spacer because that belt shouldn't have tracked off the pulley like that???

@Robocop1127

I checked out each pulley for burrs or dings, checked the way the belts aligned into the pulleys before
I put the belt on and then put the belt on and checked the alignment and everything looks good.

I think I am spinning the belt on the pulleys perhaps my tensioner just isn't cutting it, Wyatt said that
the stock tensioner should be able to handle a 6lb kit without issue, but in my case I don't think it can.

I am upgrading to the Thump Tensioner thanks to YLWJKT!

Brett, you might not want to hear this but when the edge of your belt is cut as in your situation, it's not due to the belt tensioner but it's caused by the IDLER pulley bracket. Ask me how I know,I've owned boosted SRT8's and have personally installed 2 Maggies on 392 Challengers and 1 Vortech and 1 Kenne Bell on SRT8's & both 392 Applications cut belts just like yours and the IDLER Pulley Bracket shims that were supplied in the Kit were all off!!! I suppose you'll find out if down the road the HD Belt shows the exact cut in the belt but let's hope not & good luck with everything & enjoy your holiday!!!

I'm not sure what you are talking about. There are no tensioner pulley shims. The tensioner doesn't get
touched at all during the install. There is one shim for the double idler pulley setup that comes with the
supercharger kit. The belt is running dead center in the middle of the idlers that come with the supercharger.

Do you have a photo of these tensioner shims?

Sorry, my fault brother I meant the ider bracket. I had a 12 hr day out on the Firing Range with some new Police Recruits in this heat the past few days!!! It fried my brain,lol!!! Brett, the key here is to either add washers behind the spacers on one or both sides behind the idler bracket to bring the idlers out a little so that the belt rides directly in the middle or you might even have to grind down both spacers to bring the pulleys in a little because the belt was walking off the backside of the pulleys. You'll see what I'm describing should you locate the issue. Wish you were closer cause I'd be glad to help you out!!! Brett, lastly, was your belt cut towards the front edge facing towards the rear of the Rad or was it cut on the backside facing towards the front of the water-pump because that will give me an exact idea of what spacers will need either lengthened or reduced? (The belt generally walks towards the front or rear of the Rad which requires that you add a little washer behind both of the lower spacers to get the belt to ride more towards the middle of both idler pulleys) (On one of the 392 Installs I had to take about 0.50 off of the spacer to get the belt from riding towards the rear of the idler pulley) As I stated you never know what size spacers they're giving customers in these Magnuson kits!!!

(I like what you did here making me look like I don't know what I'm talking about due to my error,lol!!!) ( Brett, I keep forgetting that you have the 392 kit and for some reason I have the 6.1 kit & their issues on my mind with the 3 spacers included but the (spacer/shim) is the issue and should either be lengthened by adding a washer or 2 or actually filed down to get the belt to ride in the middle of the idler pulleys) **( Another great thing to do is to setup a video of the belt under the hood showing how it rides on the pulleys while you sit in the vehicle & rev the motor because that's when the belt generally walks is at higher RPM's)**
