    What brand serpentine belt to purchse?

    I am going to replace the 2 serpentine belts on my 5.0L Mercs this spring. I priced the Merc parts and they are stupid expensive compared to just getting and equal size belt from the local auto supply shop or ebay. There are many brands to chose from, can anyone recommend one they have had good luck with?

      Napa or gates. Gates makes Napa belts. The should be a cross reference chart, then look at the Amazon price.

          I just replaced my Napa serpentines (Cummins engines) after 1,000 hours and they still look new, no cracks, no visual wear. Maybe I should have left them on, lifetime warranty....
