    "Fan" belts used to be checked for a 1/2" deflection off center but that was a long time ago when cars actually had fan belts and I worked at an Oldsmobile dealership. I'm sure there's a spec somewhere and for these rib belts. I'm guessing the spec for deflection is about a 1/4" off center.

    I'll look for the spec today. Thanks for the info/help.
