Before serpertine belts were the norm some 164 12v engines had V-belts. Here is picture of set up.

If you have a RHD model water pump belt is 60571636, alternator belt 60513889 (light background part numbers) Darker part numbers for LHD models. Power steering belt has two choices for either RHD or LHD depending on early or later power steering pulley.

To find a correct size aftermarket V-belt for these 164s you probably will need to take old belt to parts store for a match up with a stretch gauge they usually have for you to match up size and width.

Thanks for that Steve - I assume that post was custom-made for me, after I mentioned on another thread that my 164 had the V-belts. :)

I wonder why there should be a difference between LHD and RHD, but no matter - it just serves to prove that taking the old belt to the parts shop is the only certain way!

Mine at present is wearing a 'Mitsuboshi' belt, made in Japan... that can't be right. ;)

Obviously with the misspelling, it's a Chinese knock-off of a Japanese copy of an Italian design sourced from...

Mitsuboshi is an OEM brand found original equipment on many Japanese cars in my experience. In the U.S. you would have to buy one of those at a Japanese car dealer. They are of a high quality and I would keep running it if it is still good and the right size.

Yes - the logo is three stars, rather than Mitsubishi which is three diamonds.

This sort of thing is common in NZ due to the very large proportion of Japanese cars on the roads.

I inspected all three V-belts on my 164 last night and they are all in excellent condition, so an opportunity for a modest cost saving.

This is a V-belt not a flat Poly-V belt

OEM belt 60513237 is available from Germany €13 plus shipping
This belt is for early style V-shaped belt 164 not same belt as used on 164 with flat Poly-V belt 60571636. Never seen a USA model 164 use early style V-belt or V-belt pulleys.

Here are various manufactures part numbers for flat ribbed Poly-V belts:

Alfa part number 60571636 same as Micro-rib metric 425K7, etc:

Yes obviously these belts are for European models only. In any case the OEM belts ARE available, got an email from the German shop today they are in stock.

I am searching for the water pump pulley for a 1992 164 2.0 v6 Turbo, so you know where I can find one in Europe? It is NLA from Alfa.
The AR part number for that v-belt water pump pulley is 60513158. It is used on both V6 turbo and non-turbo with V-belt set up.
