The width of the belt is important. You do not want the belt running too low in the pulley. It will slip if to low and bottoms out. The belts need to run Flush with the top of the pulley for better performance. Running higher or lower will actually change the speed of the machine you are using ! I have attached a little “rough sketch” showing what I really mean. I had my own SEED cleaning equipment on my farm, so I did get to learn about belts and pulleys the “hard way !”
Personally I would use a V belt over a link belt anytime !
