The local AutoZone near me sells belts and hoses made by Kelly Springfield and they are priced really cheap. Anyone ever use this brand are they worth trying?

Don't know about the belts or hoses, but I do know Kelly-Springfield tires are great. The tires last forever. Probably the same company.

The only thing about the hoses from AutoZone is they don't have the spring inside to keep from collapsing. And the folks behind the counter look at you with that "deer-in-the-headlights" look when you ask about it.
The water pumps are cheap China-made; poor castings, poor water flow. At least the hoses and pump for my 454 chevy PU were like that.
