RM compressor belts.

Does anyone know the size/specification or part number for RM compressor belts. Also, anyone know a good supplier who will mail out said part?

My bus number (if any): searching

Re: RM compressor belts.

Any help would be very appreciated. I am asking on behalf of a friend in France who urgently needs a set for his RM.

Re: RM compressor belts.

What bus is it for? The RML in Nantes ?
If not is it an RML with Cummins engine, Wilson box or Allinson?
Contact Philippe Grit on Monday, we may have stock, or phone Partmaster in Rochester with engine/gearbox details.

My bus number (if any): RTL 960, RMC 1458, RM 1585 and several RTs

Looking for these belts, but Ferodo V1021 has teeth and isn't the same type of V belt as the Goodyear 1064H
Anyone a Gates or another part number please? Is it the Gates 6476 MC or 6475 EXL belt as Chris Dobbong fitted?

Re: RM compressor belts.

Gates 6476 sounds familiar, I've got some on the shelf. If I remember I'll have a look tomorrow.

Re: RM compressor belts.

Don't forget to buy 2 extra belts and leave them on the bulkhead underneath, through the porpshaft, will save you a lot of hassle if you break belts out on the road!
