Brand New Large and Small Replacement Cassette Drive Belts for Spectrum +2 (Grey Model)


THIS PACK CONTAINS 2 BELTS - THE MAIN DRIVE BELT AND THE SMALL BELT

If you require just the large, main drive belt, these are available on their own in another listing in our Shop.

The small belt, only present on the grey +2 model tends to last very well and rarely need to be replaced, but if yours is worn and slipping then this is an ideal replacement to fit at the same time as the more troublesome large belt - both are included in this set.

The cause of poor loading performance on the +2 range of Spectrums is often due to stretching and wear of the tape mechanism drive belts. 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 unmoving 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.

A full service kit is also available in the shop with all the equipment you need (including belt) and full colour instruction manual.
