Hello Ken,

I have just bought some 22mm (close to 7/8inch) type "c" Brammer "v"belt from WWW.stationaryengineparts.com. This fits my 2 3/4 perfectly.
I know they do other sizes. It might be worth a go. Mine arrived today (bought 5 metres of it) and it is good quality and matches my existing belt really well.

If you type in "Brammer" in their search engine it brings up all their belt sizes.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Ian

You can get C section belting from any bearing/engineering supplies factor. I have used Opti belts, these come in 1" increments, so you need to have some idea of the length required. The advantage of this type of belt is that they never stretch - unlike Brammer belt, which never stops stretching!
Cheers, Graeme

Hi all thanks for the replies ,the belt is for my 1914 New Hudson 211cc and needs to be 3/4" I have tried "c" section belt but it is too wide and rides high up out of the pulleys on the other hand the "b" section belt bottoms out.I bought some 3/4" brammer belt from America but when it came it was "b" section .Many thanks Ken
