THIS PACK CONTAINS 1 BELT
Twin packs and packs of 5 are also available in the our Shop if you want to replace one and keep one as a spare or you are a repairer and need more..
When anyone buys a Spectrum +3 these days, or finds one in the loft, the most common fault is a non-working drive.
The old drive belts perished badly over time and in some cases the solution to a non-working drive is a thorough clean and a drive belt replacement.
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 drive motor capstan and pulley wheel with Cassette / Disk Drive Head Cleaning Fluid available in our eBay shop. Residues of the old, worn belts can caused the new belts to slip and/or "ride up" and come off the pulleys.
A full service kit is also available in the shop with all the equipment you need (including belt) and full colour instruction manual.
These belts will also fit the Amstrad CPC 664, 6128 & 6128 Plus, and also the DDI-1 & FD-1 external disk drives. They are also suitable for the Amstrad PCW machines which have the 3" drives (all but the PCW 9512+).
