Brand New Replacement Cassette Drive & Tape Counter Belts for the Hong Kong Manufactured Atari 1010 Cassette Unit (FLAT Section Belt Model)

FLAT SECTION DRIVE BELT

THIS PACK CONTAINS 2 BELTS - THE MAIN DRIVE BELT AND THE TAPE COUNTER BELT.

These belts are suitable for the Hong Kong made Atari 1010 which uses a "FLAT SECTION" main drive belt - they are not suitable for either the Hong Kong made unit which uses the "square section belt", or the Singapore made unit.

The cause of poor loading performance from the Atari 1010 Cassette unit is often a perishing drive belt becoming slack, or more commonly kinked where it has sat without moving around the drive pulley for 30 years or so. This kink then becomes a permanent feature of the belt causing it to jump and slip.

The belts supplied are brand-new replacements, as close as is possible to the design and size of the originals, but made from modern, more resilient materials. They have been tested extensively on this machine and work perfectly.

Manufactured in Germany, they are of premium quality. They are not the cheap, terrible quality things from the Chinese belt bundles so widely available now.

Important:
Before fitting the new belts, make sure that all traces of the old belts have been removed from the pulley wheels with Cassette / Disk Drive Head Cleaning Fluid available in our shop. Residues of the old, worn belts can caused the new belts to slip and/or "ride up" and come off the pulleys.
