    I have a 464 which is in need of a new belt. The current belt is so deformed that I can’t make up what the needed diameter should approx. be. Could someone tell me what the diameter is?

    It seems the productnumber for the capstan belt is: 58007735500 and is identical to the 688 and 112 MKII

    OK the number crosses to a FRW8.0 on the PRB cross reference PDF file. Then that is defined as 8.0" X .150" X .023" thick which can be had at Consolidated Electronics as a FM8.0

    The FM8.0 is .2 wide- if that is a problem then look at FS8.0 but I would prefer to use the FM myself.

    Thanks a bunch! Luckily my neighbour had one lying around of that diameter. Not the same height though, but at least I’m a step further into finding out if I can get this one fully running.

    I really envy you guys being able to get these type of parts in your country. In (western) Europe it’s getting increasingly harder.
