Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw delta 36-l31 belt

Did a table saw alignment and noticed table saw belts weren’t tight. While trying to do that, noticed that the motor mount bolt wouldn’t tighten b/c of bad thread on the cast iron sleeve. Figured I can get a longer bolt and attach a nut to the other end. Anyone recommend aganist this?

While inspecting the belts, I think I can use a set of new belts. But looking online, didn’t find any places that has it in stock. Can any one recommend a place that is resonable in pricing aswell.
Delta table saw model is 36-L31X-BC50
Belt I need is 3V-BLTS 4L 261/16 which is delta part number 5140043-25

Hi Be Bliss,

I saw your post about Delta parts. I have an old Delta myself and have done some repairs over the years.

You can get the belt in stock at http://www.ereplacementparts.com
Belt: 3v-BLTS4l 261/16
Part # 5140043-25
Cost: $45.73
Exact URL Location: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/3vblts-26116-p-89186.html

Hope this helps, I know finding parts for older saws can be aggregating.

I buy my belts off amazon, usually the best deals around (far better than ereplacements in my experience) and usually have a selection of different quality. A picture would help as to where you’re planning on turning the fixed fastener into a floating fastener. It would probably be okay, depending on how thick the iron is where you’re planning on doing this, a better alternative could be to install a helicoil thread repair insert.

Ok, I found my answer for now. Ordered 2 v belts from http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-T21992-V-Belt-2-Inch-4-Foot/dp/B001BQDS8I from peachtree and got free shipping. Hope I made the right decision.

Well, money is always an issue.
The one from e-replacement would have cost me 45+. Only reason I got 2 power twist belt is with the hope that I can use part of it for my delta jointer and for free shipping. Most of the reviews said it solved their vibration issue on their table saw. While I never noticed this on my table saw, the v-belts wants to stay in its home postion when trying to move the saw blade by hand. Experienced this while trying to do the saw alignment. So, I hope this is a better investment.
