Default Replacement Belts for Ideal

Just got a nice little Ideal with 10-inch flywheels. Am looking to get a replacement belt for the fan. Right now it has a V-belt on it. Also, does anyone know where I might get some small iron wheels to make a cart for it? This is my 6-year old daughter's engine and want to make a scale looking cart for it so she can pull it around.

Thanks for any and all help and thanks Harry!

Question Re: Replacement Belts for Ideal

Does your Ideal take a flat belt, or is it grooved for a round leather belt?

It has the pulley for the small flat belt.

Measure the length of belt you need, then call Ed at Hit & Miss. They sell 1" wide leather belting and will even put Clipper lacing on it if you don't have a belt lacing machine to do it yourself.
