Kathy, you haven't said what you found out at Motion Industries. Please update.

i have not had the chance to research yet.  got the post a little late.  will check and get back. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

this is not off a car.  it's off my horse hotwalker variable speed motor.  i have looked up the belt by the numbers on the belt, but no go.  i will go to a motor place in town as soon as i get a chance.  no luck on line, but i think they don't make the same belt and i will have to find equivalent.
The only auto type belt that might work is a over head cam timing belt.  I suspect the inside of the belt is "cogged"  Give W.W. Granger a call or better yet carry the old belt with you.  One possiable cure is to replace the pullys with v-belt pullies and employ a segmented v-belt.  Segmented belts are very rugged and you can add, remove or replace  segments as needed to create a belt of any length.

A couple of years ago I got the oil pan for my Ford 8N COD.
