Anyone used SCA Calibre V belts?
I've noticed they're manufactured by Gates. Are they worth buying?
There should be cheaper options available to you online through ebay. but shouldn't be worse than dayco,
Due to my predjudices, I'd be wary.
Gates-Gates and Calibre-Gates may or may not be the same thing.
That said, its only a accessory belt and you do have two of them - it isn't like its a timing belt, so it'd probably be fine. They take no time to change.
Of course, given their relatively low cost, I'd just end up using something known-decent and not think about it after fitting.
Thanks for the input guys.
I bought them today, as I needed them in a hurry. Unfortunately on a 740, one belt drives the power steering and water pump/fan, a second drives only the aircon, and a third drives only the alternator.
I guess being new they're unlikely to let go without warning, so if they don't last I'll order something better.
I fitted the belts, they seem to be good quality. Time will tell.
