Does anyone out there know if the belt on the brent ie wheels are an off the shelf part, and if so does anyone have a part number? I seem to recall it being a grooved poly v-belt, but I dont have the wheel in front of me. Hoping to avoid having to order from amaco, l,et me know if ya'll have any info.

You may be able to find a stock part, however the belt needs to be seamless, or you'll hear and feel the seam with every rotation as it goes around the small pulley.

The belts on a model CXC or C or B are not off the shelf belts and have 5 or 10 groves.
Call Amaco or brickyard supply as they are next to Amaco and sell the parts.
I have never owed a IE but the rest of the line is not off the shelf.I never had a belt goo bad either.

If I remember right the belts on Thomas Stuart wheels, before Tom sold to Skutt, were from France. Said he had a hard time finding off the shelf seamless belts.
