bilyo – Are link belts actually inherently quieter? Or are they reputed to vibrate less because they don t get deformed after a long time with the stress of suspending the motor? I do think the belt will have to be replaced (It had held that motor in one position for 6+ years before getting it out of my grandfather s basement).

I can only speak from experience. They are more flexible and, therefore, smoother and quieter. BTW, I have found no difference, except price, between the HF link belt and the red one sold elsewhere. Be sure to measure the width of the pulleys in order to get the correct width belt (widest point between the pulley rims).
