    I currently run a 14mm belt that is 3.3 wide. When i called up to get a new belt he said this is an oddball size and its one of the most expensive belts as well.

    Am I able to go to a more narrow belt? ie 2.6 and have it be more common and cheaper. and if so do I just change the idler pulley??

    526" Brad 5, 14-71psi for basic motor info.

    Any info appreciated.

    thanks

    I would not go to a narrower belt. Do you what length your belt is? What are the numbers on it? Is it an 8mm, 11mm, 13.9mm or 14mm pitch?
