Default Flathead Fan Belt Needed - Got a Part #?

I need a fan belt for my 24 stud '38 Flathead.

Does anyone have a NAPA part number for a belt that will work?

TIA, JH

Napa's website shows a belt for generator/water pumps as

NBH 2524538 ($17.69)

For a '38 V8

Belt - Fan
NBH
2526366 $13.89 ('42-48 second belt...)

Belt - Generator & Water Pump
NBH
2524538 $17.69 (Main '42-48 belt)

Belt - Generator & Water Pump ---1937 type
NBH
2524538

Same...this may not be right for '37-8 manifolds with gen stud very close to deck, should be right for taller bracket with stup maybe 1 1/2" above deck...

NAPA online produces results on some early vehicle searches, some things require trickery, some listed only in paper catalog. Anyone know which parts of those numbers call out length??

B50 is actually an equipment belt rather than an automotive unit. It is approximately 50" long.
Gates makes the correct belts in automotive grade and your lcaol parts store should have it on the hooks in the back.

I'm running a B50 on mine as well - they're easier to find.
