    Does anyone know where I can get a GEBE drive belt--from anyone rather than GEBE

    Read the numbers on the belt and look them up to find the manufacturer.Chances are its made by Gates.

    yes, Gates makes it

    You are right. Gates makes GEBE belts. The belts they make for GEBE are proprietary--only GEBE can sell them So GEBE can ask what they want for them and have no competitors. Gates makes a version of the belt that is the same in every respect save one--it is not made with kevlar cording. How much difference that makes in length of life I don't know. What I do know is that the one belt can be purchased online for about 14$, with UPS shipping the total is about 25$. GEBE charges 32$ for their product and shipping? Probably something like 8$. So...

    So how about a p/n# on the 5mm pitch 9mm wide toothed gates belt? That would really be helpful.

    Yes, that is the right one. If you order more than one at a time you get a better deal--the shipping on two or three belts is not much more than on just one--but check to make sure of that. There are other places, I believe, that sell the belt for a little less than Royal. But all of the outfits that sell it use UPS for shipper.

    That is exactly the same thing as what he has already found. I know, I have just received one delivered by UPS.If it performs well, I will order two or three next time and save a lot on postage.
