I don’t really have a preference - 8 ball has manual simply because I’ve never changed it. When working properly, the auto is great.

Hi all,
I have more questions on this topic. My Se6a has a 3.0 Essex engine but not the original. The crank pulley has 3 grooves, one for alternator and water pump, one for PS and one spare. The PS belt is 1000mm as confirmed on either posts but I can’t find any reference to what profile it is.
Does anyone know the profile or a part number?

Also the ps pump pulley doesn’t seem to line up the crank pulley. Are they all like that? The bracket on the engine looks to substantial to bend. I only have one day this weekend to get it all fixed so I can use it for something.
