Reading this old thread do we know how Scott made out with the belt change? The post kind of ends abruptly, and then resurfaces two years later, but with no conclusions on how he made out!,

Well, it is done. Thank you all for so much help and guidance.
There was some talk about the difficulty if inserting the new drive belts having to force them between the pulley and the machine body where the gap is so small.
I helped myself with the most commonly used tool in our world - the paperclip - fashioned with a pair of long-nosed pliers. I attach that here as it may help future newbies like me
