Engine belt

Hello, new to boat life. Our engine belt in our 1999 mainship trawler 390 is going bad and im unsure of where to purchase a new one/how to install. Does anyone have advice? Thanks.

Take the old one to any NAPA store and buy two.

Yep, take old one to Napa or other old skool auto store. Not Autozone. Get a name brand like Gates or Dayco, don't skimp.

Gathering that you have a six cyl Yanmar. They are fine engines, but have earned a rep as belt eaters.

Keep spares (one new, one old is fine) on the boat and the tools to change it.

I put gates green stripe belts on my Yanmar 6LYA-ste engines, no more belt dust like I had with the Yanmar OEM belts.Gates 9540 HD is the part number I used.
Best
