    Because I already have most of the top half off of the 305 in my 87' K5 due to a blown intake manifold gasket, I figured I'd replace all of the belts and hoses while I'm at it. We take her out to the middle of nowhere regularly with the wife and kids and don't mind spending a little extra for reliability. What brand/model have you had the best luck with? Goodyear, Dayco, Gates, etc.?

    I appreciate any input and love the site and forum! :bow:

    I usually get them from NAPA, with NAPA branding which are made by Gates Rubber Company, so I guess Gates would be my answerer..
