Simrad wp30 drive belt from small motor

Hi all,
I am hoping to find the numbers of the original belt Simrad used to drive from the motor to the gearing of my wheelpilot. It is a Gates belt approx. 1/4 inch wide, half round teeth and approx 7-8 inches long. The numbers I've been able to cull from my old belt appear to be 396A3. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Simrad wp30 drive belt from small motor

I am carrying a spare belt that I bought at Florida Bearings, a general engineering supplier.
I gave him the numbers on the belt, and he answered that as Gates belts agents, they would not sell me the belt as it was made for Raymarine only and I should go to them. Their price was ridiculous.
I phoned back and got a different rep, I described the belt, its length, the TPI (teeth per inch) the width the duty etc. He called back in 15 minutes and told me they could get it slit for me off the tube, but I would have to pay first. I went in, paid the $8.75 and two days later it arrived. Perfect fit.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. Do you still have the numbers off the Gates belt? My numbers did not come up when I queried a Gates rep. Or perhaps, the number of the supplier?
Thanks.
Brian
