16/6 fan belt availability

Post by bayliss »

Any leads please as to where I may purchase the fan belt to fit my 1934 16/6 (chrome rad)
My one in current use looks good but I would like to carry a spare.

To answer my own question I have measured the belt length required at 780mm and plenty of belts are available in that size. Although the width is reduced, so I expect I will buy a toothed belt and turn it inside out so the teeth are showing outside.

Thanks for link Martin, I had seen those belts and they do offer a 780mm x 20mm which would be OK. The problem is that they are only 1mm thick, not sure that would be OK. My current belt is around two or three mm thick.
