  • Preventative Maintenance - A Jets A2 - Ball Wheel Belt Question

    A friend was looking at his ball wheel belt which stated it was 208" long, (Pic 1). He was pretty sure that it is a B205 belt which should be 205" long. The answer is "yes" to both. A B205 indicates that it is had an ID length of 205". To get the OD on a "B" belt you must add 3" to yield 208". For an "A" belt you add 2", "C" 4", "D" 5" and so on. "L" & "V" belts ARE measured from their OD but these are really for fractional horsepower applications.

    I've included some literature on belts and a calculator +info for reference. I created this info before I left Beloit for the benefit of the next mechanic. You'll note 1 & 8 use longer M-EL belts. That's because the foundation sank causing the elevator to shift to left requiring a longer belt. I never re-shimmed the elevator - my bad. IMO, it is easier to keep all the M-GB belts the same and use non-standard M-EL belts as you have alot more forgiveness with the idler on the M-EL belt. And if you have "pivoting" motors, don't forget to set the "Torque Plate" gap to prevent the M-GB belt from flying off.
