Went to see Iron Man 3 after church today....awesome.......ok, on with the issue. Got home from the movie and started on the Emerson AC-205(another Nashv. swap meet radio). Took about an hour to check the tube, resistors and replace the caps. All is good. The tuning dial is driven by what appears to be a rubber belt , looks kind like a serpentine fan belt for a car.
Question:
Anyone know where to purchase one or better yet a good hardware store replacement trick? Also want to note I was unable to fine a schematic on Nostalgia, Beitman's or Radio Museum. Anyone have one?

Found a belt on http://www.adamsradio.com/. Ordered it today, now let's hope it fits and works.

Chassis has been recapped, tubes and resistors checked, new dial drive belt, new dial cover and replaced the grill cloth, . Now it's time to refinish the cabinet. More to come.
