Default 4 Ron my 2005 Redline?

I just picked up a 2005 Ion Redline. While changing out the serpentine belt I discovered that the crank pulley is a 4 rib pulley rather than matching the 5 ribs on the rest of the pulleys.
Anybody have any idea why this would be set up this way?
The belt that is on there currently has had the 5th rib removed on the entire belt.
I did some searching and was unable to see how having 'less' ribs is better than more.
Thanks
PS, I need the stock, 5-rib crank pulley if anybody has one!

My 04 Ion Redline clutch pedal started going way down to the floor and I would shift let off the clutch pedal and the pedal would go up way past the normal position

sounds like the clutch line needs to be vacuum bled (many threads on how to, one i think here in the RL section), and either the master cylinder rod is worn out, the retaining clip on the pedal is not pressed in all the way or worn, or the section in the pedal where the rod presses in is worn.

the master cylinder would have to be replaced, as the rod tip cannot be changed.
Check if the white clip on the pedal is pressed in all the way, while you have it resting on the rod. if nothing, then replace it.
Last i heard, the section the rod goes in can be replaced, but i never seen it for myself. if not, then a new pedal itself will cost you $200 from GM

By the way, instead of thread stealing, start a new topic...
