I've just come across some V-Belts (fan belts) that are supposedly for 2600 but they are very different to the ones on my cars and I wonder if they are for early dynamo vehicles.

Mine (all alternator cars) have a 437mm/ 37 inch belt, solid section, 12mm tapering to 7mm and 10mm deep. The replacement belt is 850mm long, 13mm tapering to 8mm and 8mm deep, and ridged.

Can anyone confirm whether this would fit a dynamo car?

Thanks,

John

I don't believe 437mm is equal to 37 inches.

Quite right! I meant 937mm, which is just under 37".

Thanks Ian. I have a similar list, and was thrown as the Mintex WKT335 was more like 860mm, and I have a NOS Mintex KM339 packet which had the wrong belt inside. On the packet (in old money) it is marked top width 1/2", angle 34 deg, OD 33 55/64", ID 31 1/2", thickness 3/8. The belt in the packet was larger than the alternator ones, more like 966mm.

The belt off of my very original Sprint is a Pirelli Austrene belt (no longer available) marked 4 x 4. I assume this was OEM, as although the car had just been serviced before being placed in storage, it would have been unlikely to have had a fan belt replaced in 5000 miles.
