I have a Jet JWL-1236 that I got recently and I moved it from S. Texas to Iowa, after setting it up and turning it on it started running hot- I could smell something burning so I took the motor in to have it checked and the company that checked it said it was fine. Has anyone had similar experience? Also when removing the motor the belt that was on it was a m22 and i had to pull the pulley off to remove it- I looked up the replacement part online calls for a vb-m23, but it doesn’t give any specs any info would be a great help.

Might help if measure the old belt or take it to auto parts, or other places selling v-belts.

I just replaced the one on mine… it’s a standard 3L230 belt.

Cheers,

It’s easier to just use a link belt that is adjustable in length by adding or removing links. HF carries them. After looking on-line at the lathe, a link type belt might not work.

thanks for the responses guys. Brad did you have to pull the pulley off the spindle to get the belt on?
i had to pull mine off- the belt on it had m22 printed on it (i got mine second hand so i’m not sure if its a wider belt),
the replacement part calls for vbm23.
MrRon I’m not sure if those belts will work, the pulleys open n close.
Thanks again, Don.

Didn’t have to pull the pulley off… just had to pull the sheaves apart far enough. M22 is going to be too small by an inch… M23 (3L230) has a 23” O.D. What you got is 22”.

Cheers,
Brad
