How To Measure Standard Belts
Most belts are measured by the outside circumference for the overall length.
 
 
Measuring for standard A,B,C,D,E,AX,BX & A, B Kevlar Section V Belts:
 
Width's:
A Section=1/2" Wide
B Section=5/8" Wide
C Section=7/8" Wide
D Section=1-1/4" Wide
E Section=1-1/8" Wide
AX Section= 1/2" Wide
BX Section= 5/8" Wide
 
 
All A,B,C,D,E,AX,BX belts have the inside circumference measurement after the letter.  Then the outside circumference will be different according to what section you need. This also is for the banded belts.  Measure the each band to obtain the correct width.
 
Outside Circumference per section:
A= Add 2" to belt number (Example A88 = 90" Outside Circumference)
B= Add 3" to belt number (Example B88 = 91" Outside Circumference)
C= Add 4" to belt number (Example C88 = 92" Outside Circumference)
D= Add 5" to belt number (Example D105 = 110" Outside Circumference)
E= Add 6" to belt number (Example E144 = 150" Outside Circumference)
AX= Add 2" to belt number (Example AX60 = 62" Outside Circumference)
BX= Add 3" to belt number (Example BX50 = 53" Outside Circumference)
 
Measuring for standard 2L,3L,3V,5V,8V,3VX,5VX & 3L Kevlar V-Belts:
 
Width's:
 
2L= 1/4" Wide
3L= 3/8" Wide
3V= 3/8" Wide
5V= 5/8" Wide
8V= 1" Wide
3VX= 3/8" Wide
5VX= 5/8" Wide
 
All sections 2L,3L,3V,5V,8V,3VX,5VX belts have the outside circumference after the number and letter(s).  Inside circumference are not measured for these sections.  This also is for the banded belts.  Measure the each band to obtain the correct width.
 
Outside Circumference per section:
2L= (Example 2L350 = 35" Outside Circumference)
3L= (Example 3L450 = 45" Outside Circumference)
3V= (Example 3V800 = 80" Outside Circumference)
5V= (Example 5V1180 = 118" Outside Circumference)
8V= (Example 8V2120 = 212" Outside Circmuference)
3VX= (Example 3VX520 = 52" Outside Circumference)
5VX= (Example 5VX810 = 81" Outside Circumference)
 
Measuring J,K,L,M Micro Rib Belts:
 
Width's
J= 0.092" X's the number of ribs
K= 0.140" X's the number of ribs
L= 0.185" X's the number of ribs
M= 0.370" X's the number of ribs
 
All sections J,K,L,M belts will have the outside circumference in front of the letter.  The rib count will be the number after the letter.
 
Outside Circumference & Rib Count per section:
J= (Example 480J6 = 48" Outside Circumference and 6 Ribs) 
K= (Example 845K8 = 84.5" Outside Circumference and 8 Ribs)
L= (Example 540L10 = 54" Outside Circumference and 10 Ribs)
M= (Example 940M6 = 94" Outside Circumference and 6 Ribs)
