Oh well time for a new V-belt (and p/s pump belt). Only took about 1 minute of driving to blow the overflow tank as i pulled up to the driveway.

LOL! Belts... Same thing happened to me.
I'm at work and my car is in the shop so I don't have your belt numbers handy. Maybe CCA will have it. I'll go look.

CCA didn't have it but I found this for 68mm.
Special 1750mm drive belt to work with smaller diameter pulley
PART NO....................................................................................6PK1750
If I remember correctly, gates belt part numbers match the length in millimeters. 1750 etc. So adjust from there.

Your tensioner shock might be worn out. If that's old you could toss a perfectly good belt at high RPM. Also be sure all the pulleys are perfeclty lined up. A mounting bolt for one of the idlers or accessories could have come loose and cocked a pulley. I also saw a dealer installed pulley job go all wrong when they bent an idler pulley bracket trying to get the belt on. Damn thing kept chucking belts untill I noticed the missaligned pulley. Good thing is the dealer replaced the bracket for free

new belts put on
american belt size for stock pulley 690
for 68mm pulley 685
for 58mm'ish pulley 680
pep boys special $12 for serp belt. They can pull up the stock serp belt and ask for the smaller size #.
Works good. Drove it maybe 50+ miles today everything was ok. Was a mutha f***** getting the tensioner on i guess this belt is tighter than what got shredded.
