Re: poly-v-belt

Which brings me to the subject of interchangeability of the  belts/pulleys: 
third belt is the 2nd* type, the only one available at  that time, but Joe 
told me such a horror story about replacing his  pulley that I decided to take
a gamble and put the new belt on the original  pulley. So far, a few years and
many thousands of miles later, no apparent  problems.

What do you make of that?

*Is the "Elast" belt  actually version 3, and my current v2?>>

There are now two belts available. The First generation belt in no  longer 
available. So yes, the Elast belt is v3.0 I never heard Joe's horror  story, but 
I have changed several of the early pulleys when they were still a  warranty 
matter, and had no particular trouble.
