Gates Super HC belt

You recommend the Gates Super HC belt on your web site. I notice they have a 3VX belt that is 3/8 inch wide at the top and a 5VX belt that is 5/8 inch wide at the top. My sheave is 1/2 inch wide at the top. Which Gates Super HC do you recommend?

The belt should not bottom out. That is, the sides of the belt should make the only contact.

Most often Ample alternators are set up for 1/2 belts.

Gates doesn't make a Super HC belt to fit a 1/2 inch sheave. It's either 3/8 or 5/8. Why do you recommend this belt when it doesn't fit your 1/2 inch sheave?

Actually we stopped using Gates a long time ago, and switched to Dayco TopCog belts.

Maybe it was because they quit making the 1/2 inch?
