I'm trying to install the conveyor belt in the elevator correctly. YouTube didn't help. I called A.T. Ferrell & Co and Phil said I have an original belt and he can't remember how it was installed and laced. He said something about an upgraded version, but they haven't made those in about 3 decades. I put the belt in just to run it, but it is not lapped correct, it has to be backwards(YouTube). As seen in the pictures, the lap would allow material under the belt. There are 2 slots in the belting at the same spacing of the canvas straps. Anyone have a clue?
I would try to bring the straps in underneath the flap and through the slots in the belt and then into the buckles.
We still have the manual for a 2B. I can check tomorrow if it says anything about the belt.
Edit: No comment in the manual about the elevator conveyor belt....did not even have a part # in the parts section.
