Re: Drive belt queston


I have a v-belt driven model A which is shown on the SB origin card.  Can't find out anything about it.  Can anyone provide reference on why built, who sold to and related?  Thanks,  Dows not show up in UK tool inventory.

I’ve had very good success using a five ribbed automotive power transmission flat belt driving my SB 9step pulley arrangement. Sometimes called a V belt I guess, although the ribbed bias runs along the length of the belts. To heavy a cut stalls the motor, before slipping.

Then there's the mythical V belts. Not all peaches and cream however. Changing between the the front largest two largest grooves interferes with the headstock casting.
