I am brand new here, I picked up a Sanyo M9923 for $2 and am trying to fix it up.
Everything works great except the cassette belts of course, I have never replaced these before and am frankly not a very "handy" person, can anyone point me to the right sizes? Thanks!

Most likely you can't and you need to measure old belt ;-)

Ok, thanks.. It looks to be a flat belt, I'll have to measure it once I get the unit.. :-)

What unit is it? Did you check the Rusiland PRB belts list?

I don't know if the previous posted site is down now, but here's another site that has reference catalog, for those that hadn't already downloaded the catalog.

Need belt sizes for Sharp GF-6060

 

checked the PRB belts list but only lists 2 belts

FRX9.7

SCX8.4

 

I think there are 3 belts maybe they have left out the counter belt

anyone know I think the deck is also the same as the Sharp GF 5656

edit the more i look i think they have left out the shorter one on the wheel under the Capstan

and im thinking its a SCX5.1

can anyone confirm

:bow:

I have the same BBx, sadly i donĀ“t remember the measurements, i usually measure them with my own bare eyes, so far has worked good, sometimes small adjustment needed but works out. As i remember right, GF-6060 runs on 3 belts, 1 on the back, flat belt and one top square belt and counter belt in the front.  :yes:

Belts are a nightmare to source, great if you know the exact one but try and find that size. The cost is usually more than the boomer is worth and you don't even know if that will fix it. What if your belts aren't listed anyware and have turned to black sticky licorice? Fear no more use some high quality super glue and make custom sizes to suit. With older decks you must get the balence correct between tension and purchase. If your belt is too tight it may slow the transport speed. If the belt is too loose the auto stop may not work. This can then be used to order the exact size belt. Or just keep using your custom one!

The recommended belt sizes are SBS8.9 (counter belt and secondary belt) and FBM9.6 (flat drive belt). However, I found that SBS8.9 may be too tight and it too will affect rewind performance negatively by tugging too hard on one gear. You could possibly use a SBS9.2.

Tape 2 needs an SBM10.0 but, you can also use a SBS10.0.

This thread has been really helpful, thanks!

 

All I need to do now is source a UK-based supplier of belts in the sizes that I need.

 

Does anyone know a decent supplier I could buy belts from?
