Sanyo MX920 belt sizes?
Posted 30 May 2015 - 06:15 PM
I know a few of you guys have re-belted their Sanyo MX-920s.
Anyone out there remember the correct belt sizes/specs?
Any help appreciated.

Main: FBS9.0 (FRW9.1 for old stock)
Take-up: SBS7.0 (SCY7.0 for old stock)
Counter: SBO7.7 (SCY7.8 for old stock)
I'm rebelting mine now but didn't see the counter belt listed in searches here. The PRB database doesn't list the 920, restore kits don't mention it, and ebay will sell you one but what size is it? Russell Industries has a cross reference list, but the counter belt's Sanyo number is not listed.
I decided to measure it with wire. The path is 8.23"... with an industry standard reduction of 3-5% you're at 7.8-8.0". My old belt's thickness matches SCY7.8 and SCY8.0, which you can still buy as NOS, but freshly made ones can be found as SBO7.7 and SBO8.0. A hair thicker (39 mils vs. 31 mils) but will be fine.
