Brand New Replacement Drive Belts for Spectrum +2, +2A and +2B - Pack of 5 identical belts

THIS PACK CONTAINS 5 IDENTICAL BELTS

These belts are replacement belts for the larger belt on the Spectrum +2 (grey model) and for the single belt on the Spectrum +2A and +2B (black models).
The Spectrum +2 (grey model) has two belts, a large and a small one. The small belt rarely needs changing, but if you need this as well, both belts are available as a set in a separate listing in our Shop.

The cause of poor loading performance on the +2 range of Spectrums is often due to stretching and wear of the tape mechanism drive belt.
The old belts stretch over time and now slip causing loading problems. Also, when stood unused for many years, the belts develop a "kink" where the belt has rested, not moving, over the capstan. This kink becomes a permanent feature in the belt causing it to jump when the drive is used again.

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.
