Yanmar 3gm30 Water Pump V Belt in Dili Timor

After kicking myself for leaving Australia without a spare belt for my water pump, I set out in Dili to find one. After many stops at auto parts shops that have many belts but all too long and large. The Yanmar 3gm30 uses a M19 belt for the pump which is the smallest type according to the attached chart.

In my wonderings one man mentioned that they use smaller belts for washing machines. So I set out again, a little further into the city where its a bit more industrial. Soon after I spotted a washer and refrigerator at a shop front and a little parts store next to it. I saw immediately that they had belts hanging as by now I was trained well to see them amongst other items hanging or displayed. He had the belt, Mitsuboshi M19, so I bought 2 at $5 each.

The location of the store is approximately
8 33.632' S, 125 32.827' E
On the south side of the road.

Well done tracking the belt down!
Bit cheaper than the Yanmar price
