Time has come to replace the belts in the cruiser (air, steer, fan, etc). As there are a number of places you can get belt kits from, Repco, Toyota, etc, can anyone recommend the best way to go for a decent combination of cost and quality. Thanks.

Wazza I got mine from Marlows now called Supper Cheap, but cost didn't matter cause I was 1 hour from home and the belts broke except for a thin thread. It was cheaper than a new Motor!!!! :-))))
Ps I also had to buy a set of sockets cause I didnt have any;-(Around Oz 06/2004

Wazza,

As well as Toyota, we get belts from Bearing Service. They sell a notched belt, the brand name escapes me, which lasts really well. Reckon the tojo fan belts aren't always real good, they often need to be overtight, just to stop any squealing.

Hooroo...

Wazza,

Dayco "TOP COG" are the good ones, just found one in the store.

Buy Dayco belts they are very good quailty.Toyota belts are way to overpriced and there is no difference in quality.But always fit the new belts and keep old ones as spares just to make sure they fit.Belts are the worse of any spare parts to get right. Gotta get out there. Debbie and Mike

I always have used genuine Toyota belts and fitted them to many 4wds that are always out bush. I would rather spend a little more and have a reliable belt rather than a cheep set that may fail.

Wazza, I've recently started buying all my belts from "Gates"(Manufacturer) in Cochranes Road, Moorabbin. Only problem is you have to know the designation or take the original in for measurement.
They seem to be good quality and price has been cheaper than Repco et al.
