--Dave,the 'right' belt is a 'wrapped' 3/8", 3xv560 or something,vendors have them..keep an eye on the belt,DAILY,they DO stretch in the first few weeks,and will flip..it's also possible the pulleys-especially the fan bearing- are out of alignment;the fan bearing shaft has been known to get loose in the upper CC cover,and pull out..

Just one more question and I'll drop this. I've just read every Corvair manual I have regarding proper belt tension and am just not sure if I should take it back to Goodyear or not. With the engine totally cold, I CAN move the alternator vanes with a finger but it's not all that easy. I don't know "pounds" of pressure by feel but it seems like this is too tight.

You should be able to push the alt fan with 1 finger with some resistance on a cold engine. Do you have any Corvair buddies near you that can assist you, the belt tension is a simple adjustment every Corvair owner should know how to make.
