Belts for toque converter
« on: 15 February 2019, 08:31:53 am »
Rhys said bin the belt that came with my budget £50 Chinese torque converter.
Gemini do them but they are £38 ea. Is there an alternative supplier that’s cheaper?

Use what you have till it fails, hopefully not at an event in which case having a spare with you would be desirable :)

Just a word of warning, there are different length belts, some that say they fit, don't.

Prompted me to go and check Rhys, as far as I can tell the ones I bought are identical to the Comet branded one that came with the TAV.

Given more people will now have a bit more experience of using different belts, anyone want to share reflections on the relative merits of cheap clone belts or expensive Comet ones (other than price)?

I bought a couple off eBay for about £6.00 each, haven’t had to use them yet
