Its incredibly easy.

Carefully lift off the platter taking care not to damage the bearing if the bearing outer lifts with the platter. If you do remove the bearing outer it may be worth checking the bearing lube. Place the replacement belt around the inner sub platter. Thread a bit of cotton thread under the belt. Carefully lower the platter back onto the bearing. Pull the cotton slightly to hook the belt over the motor shaft. The platter should be eased carefully down to stop it "dropping" sharply.

Voila, the belt is fitted. :wink: Sorry no pics its so easy though!

Cotton should be fine but pink wool is ideal.

You might find it easier to use the wool loop to stretch the belt out further than the distance to the motor spindle and then refit the platter so that the belt is in position when you release the wool.
This is one of those things that's much easier to demonstrate than explain but it is easy once you have done it once or twice.

ignore the kit fitting and scroll down to the middle of the page. http://www.originlive.com/pink-triangle-pt-too-motor-power-supply-motors.html exactly the same procedure for the LPT

Thank you Cloudbase, Bil Al and Backtotheblack.
I will give it a go, it was one of my Dads and hasn't been used in a while.
Hopefully, it'll be good to go from there.
