For most Japanese decks (full platter):

Turntable platter assembly diagram - click for close-up
1. Remove the rubber mat and lift off the platter (most hubs just lift off, some require the removal of a circlip at the spindle).
2. Turn the platter over and measure the circumference of the hub (red line in the photo). The belt needs to be tight enough to hold on the inner hub with minimal stretching so deduct 5 - 10mm from the circumference to calculate the right length.
The motor pulley offset should not be added to the equation as this stretch provides the correct drive tension for the belt.
3.
Fit the belt on the hub and replace the hub on the spindle. Rotate the hub until one of the inspection holes is above the motor pulley. Grasp the belt and hook it over the pulley and through the speed changer mechanism (this stretch gives the belt the correct drive tension).
5. Check that the deck runs with no fouling, replace the mat and you're ready.


For a transcription turntable (split platter):

Transcription turntable with platter removed
1. Remove the rubber/felt mat and lift off only the outer ring section of the platter.
2. Use a piece of string to measure the total distance round the hub and motor. Then deduct 4 to 6% (typically 20-30mm) to give the correct drive tension.

3. Fit the belt on the hub and place the outer platter upside down on the hub to check that the belt runs with no fouling.

4. Then turn the platter the right way up, replace the mat and you're ready.


If you still have the old belt:
This is the least accurate way to replace your belt and is not recommended. When measuring an old belt, remember it has certainly stretched with age like a rubber band, so you will need to replace it with a slightly shorter one. The problem is that there is no way of knowing how much it has stretched.

If you are unable to measure your hub (red line in the photo) circumference, measure the diameter and use the table above, which uses the equation: C (circumference) = Pi x D (diameter). 
Pi = 3.141592 (abbreviated). Click here to learn more about Pi

JP Southward" (27/01/2011)

"Hi GB Audio person! Just quick note to say thanks very much for the drive belt which arrived safely today. Iím not sure which one of you Iíve been dealing with, but the service has been top class. You correctly predicted that a BELT29 would be the one for my deck (it was) when I couldnít figure it out from the chart ... and then got the belt here in just a couple of days. As I write, Iím sitting here listening to vinyl that hasnít had a needle through the grooves in years Ė all thanks to you". G Brown (15/03/2010)

"Found your excellent website whilst searching for a turntable drive belt for my Pioneer system. Unlike most on-line sales places your way of explaining about belt sizes and how to measure the turntable seems very logical and fool-proof". (09/03/2010)

"Hello GB Audio, Just a line to thank you for the very quick service and for taking the trouble to provide a website where we could easily identify the correct belt for our video machine. We are involved mainly in services for bands such as recording, PAT testing, video, photography and now there seems to be a demand for transferring VHS tapes to DVD, hence the need to keep our VHS machine working! Thanks again we will keep details of your website and recommend it to our customers if the occasion should arrise".

"Many thanks for great service. Drivebelt for turntable arrived this morning, after ordering yesterday afternoon.

May get back to you about a cartridge sometime in the future. Thanks again!" Ian (01/11/2007)

"Thank you for the very quick delivery of my turntable belt..    i received a phone call from you at 1830 hrs , spoke to a very helpful gentleman, who took all the information, and the following day the belt arrived in the post.. will probably need a new stylus shortly, so will be  contacting you again shortly... in the meantime many thanks...   excellent service...." regards  Gary (2007)

"Hi, I ordered 2 drive belts for a Pioneer PL12D deck from you at about 5.00 pm yesterday (Wednesday) evening by phone. I've arrived home this evening to find them delivered among my post today. I know it's not a large item but that is amazing service - if only other suppliers could be as efficient as you. Many thanks and well done." Bernie (07/06/2007)

"I initially found your website via Google search, probably using the string "turntable belt replacement". There were a few options, but your site is the most informative and reassuring of correct ordering."
