Topic tags/keywords: question

I need some help from the old tool restorers out there. I am trying to find a belt for a Elu International Power Feeder MVA 34. The original part number is 34 26 01 00 but I have no Idea where to begin looking. I also have a part number 199240-00 but have no idea where the owner got this part number. He just told me that was what he bought several years ago but lost those belts when he moved his shop. Any ideas or suggestions??

I’m not 100% sure about your feeder configuration, Is it the type with the motor mounted horizontally in line with the feed direction or the more traditional type with the motor mounted vertically?

If you are looking for the drive belt from the motor to the feeder gearbox, a good belt /power transmission supply house should be able to find one for you just by the specs and size (of course a sample would help a lot).

Maybe one on the older woodworking machinery dealers in your area might still have a parts guy that will know what you need. J & G machinery comes to mind.(http://www.jgmachinery.com/)

Now if your feeder uses a tractor type feed belt set instead of rollers, Western Roller is the place to call.

good luck

This is for the Amateur, you might find help here, I believe your unit was last made in 1989 and there is only partial support, you might get some help by contacting these guys.

An e-mail to them could not hurt.

I found this post while I was looking for information on an Elu feeder. I have a feeder I believe to be an Elu MVA 34 based on the others I have seen on the net. I am looking for documentation. Mine does have a new belt with the following data..

Goodyear Variable Speed Belt Part Number: 1430V215

14 = 14/16” (7/8”) wide
30 = 30 degree Groove angle
215 = 21.5 pitch length

I had trouble getting the varable speed (Reeves Drive) to function properly. I got it working in VS by manually opening the motor sheave and tightening down on the driven sheave and then replacing the cover. Change the speed with the feeder running.

Maybe this will help someone in the future.

Have your say...
