If all seems well I will put the new Gates 104 belt on and proceed with other checks.  Don't want to damage a $116 belt, don't you know!I think that price is way too high. I've not tried PepBoys or O-Reilly's, etc, but I have searched some reliable internet sources. I consistently see T104RB prices (no shipping or tax) in the $64-$70 range. When I saw that you paid $116, it just rocked me back on my heels. If it's still in the package, see if you can return it.

I just checked, and they list the Gates T104RB Blue belt for $64.79, plus shipping.,1986,maxima,3.0l+v6,1211263,engine,timing+belt,5716
Scroll down to the bottom... last entry.

RockAuto doesn't list it under Lotus or Jensen-Healey. The link above is to the 1986 Nissan Maxima with the 3.0 V6... it uses the same 133 tooth by 1 inch wide trapezoidal tooth belt. Later model years went through a progression of several different round-tooth profiles (not all of which were HTD), so stick with 1986 for a trapezoidal tooth belt. If you ever have trouble with a local parts counter guy failing to find a belt for a JH or Lotus 907, just direct him to the 'early' 3.0 V6 Maxima.
