The correct is smooth, not notched.

Yes, smooth is correct. Les Gerber found a smooth belt that fits his supercharged car. I’m not at my shop now, but can get that info out tomorrow.

Just a comment Notched belts vs Smooth belts. Notched belts drive more efficiently than smooth sided belts. They require less tension which is easier on the pump bearings.

This is very true. The reason behind the notched belts is they give much more surface area contact to the pulley than a smooth belt can ever give. Using a notched belt comes with the visual disadvantage. Some can live with it. Others can't. Its a huge job to change the water pump belt on any supercharged or non supercharged engine.
