Default Fan belt without notches on the underside...

Where can I get a fanbelt without the notches on the underside?

NAPA does not carry them.

Anybody?

Thanks.

Steve,. I'm just curious why you don't want the serrasions ? (That cannot be spelled correctly...) Unless it is an originality appearance issue, I feel they are a plus on the As smaller pulleys.

Corley...It is just one of those things with me I guess...It is like running a 4-blade fan...

B41 is as industrial belt, you should be able to get it at any industrial parts supply house.

The O'Rielly's near me don't have them in stock but can order them and have them same afternoon (if ordered in the morning). Gates B40 = 43", Gates B41 = 44".

If you have Amazon Prime https://www.amazon.com/Gates-B40-Hi-..._&dpSrc=detail Free one day shipping...

it has the notches.

I was able to go to O'Reily's and just take in the old belt, they had a measuring device, measured it and pulled one down off the display, and it fits. My old 1930 seems to not know it is not a Model A Belt! This situation may only work in rural areas where there are a lot of rural things run by belts!

X2. If anybody else reading the thread wants this size belt WITH the notches, ask for a BX-41. They tend to run cooler and last longer when wrapped around a tight radius, at least that the is the theory behind the notches. YMMV. Good Luck!
