    Ordered some new belts recently. Going to fit this afternoon. Alternator/WP and Power Steering.
    The ones fitted have cogs, the ones that have arrived don't. I've read the ones without run hotter and are less efficient but I don't know if it'll make lots of difference.

    Would be interested to hear what peoples experiences are.

    Thanks.

    The smooth ones are what you should have. The toothed type are designed for smaller pulleys which you don’t have so no need.

    A toothed vee belt is design to run on smaller pulley as rich said.

    They are totally interchangeable on a engine application. The best thing to make sure is the pair ate the same length
