Default Finding the right timing belt

ive got a 1994 ranger, motor was replaced at 50K because J-lube forgot to put in the plug. not sure what year the engine is.

Problem: in process of changing the timing belt and cant find the right belt that fits. (napa,pepboys, autozone) all shrugging the shoulders

the one that came off has 129 (cogs)

all belts on the market that have the right # cogs are TOO SMALL. So small you can barely get the belt over the tensioner.

Belts that are the proper length, have either 130 or 131 cogs and slip on the crankshaft pulley.

any ideas?

hey STL tried the 95210, it's too short. to get it to fit, would have to pry the belt over the tensioner.

Maybe you are doing something wrong installing it.

not sure what I could be doing wrong. Start with the Crank, move counter clockwise keeping out all slack. over the camshaft. by the time you get to the tensioner youre out of belt. belt is on all gears.

what could I possibly be missing?
