Default Serpentine Belt, matching belt size to engine horsepower

A friend wants to change from multiple v-belt drive to a serpentine belt drive. Sheave wear has been eating belts at an alarming rate. $300 / set.
Anyone have an easily understood site where I can read up on them.
My Google-fu has not been cooperating on this subject. I have a local bearing shop, but want to understand the subject better before talking to them.

See if this helps. I’m on the phone and did a quick look at the chart. Let me know if this works for you. If not I’ll check with my IBT guy.
