Belts, Plugs, Filters, Fuels, Oils, additives etc..... Told you this might morph into servicing and service items.

Doesn't really matter, the bearing is the same. What it probably started with is a manual with a sinusoidal belt (the rounded teeth), but some engines that started with square teeth and a manual tension have been upgraded to that anyway.

Simple enough, just look to roughly near the alternator bracket on the front of the engine.
