Gatorback belt

I just heard that Autozone no longer carries gatorback belts! WTF! I need one on Friday when I replace my idler pulley. Anyone know of anyone else who stocks them? I really only have an Autozone, Advance Auto Parts and some locally owned stores around here.

Yeah, Autozone quit carrying Gatorback belts about 3-4 months ago, They switched over Dayco as their premium belt now. Hell they even changed all their hoses over to Dayco, i think they just stopped carrying Goodyear products.


I work there btw...lol.

Goodyear pissed off the CEO of Autozone because they wouldnt warranty their products. We switched over to Dayco belts and hoses because you actually get a 1 yr warranty with them instead of no warranty with Goodyear belts or hoses. Personally I dot like the belts though and I work there.

I think Advance still carries them, thats where I got my last one... could always call up the local store if you don't feel like driving out just to check.
