Best Belts, where to buy Carb Kits?????

Post by GL_Steve »



Hey,

I haven't pulled the covers off yet but I'm just assuming that the belts need to be changed on my 76 with 72000 km on it.

Who has the best belts for the best price?

Randakk appears to be sold out of carb kits, is there a comparable kit that is available and/or when will the Randakk kits be available again?

Thanks

Randall sold out is sad news for sure. Nobody has a kit near as good for our today's awful ethanol impure gasoline. Hope it gets resolved soon. Belts are not hard to find as the same belt goes on a civic or similar Honda car. Goodyear and Bates and Napa are fine. New belts every 5 years is important.

Use only GATES belts. They are the best.
(I've "heard" that NAPA belts are made by Gates.)
Can't confirm it though.
