You see lots of rubber, leather, and cloth fan belts but ya don't see many of these accessory mechanical belts for your T these days. Anyone have any experience running one of these past or present?

Jay, this is very interesting. I live just north of St. Joe, as we call it, about 35 miles. I was born there in '49. I wonder where the Mechanical Belt Co. was located. Dave
