VRB410 series Zenith VCR.

This thing only uses one belt and it's stretched out. It appears to be more of a vinyl product, rather than rubber. It's for fast forward and rewind and also the takeup function.
I'm trying to remember the other firm, that handles these parts, other than Studio Sound.
I needed another VCR, like another hole in the head, as I have more than I can recall. This one was at an estate sale with the operators manual and the proper remote. $2 USD.
For a Not so Lucky Goldstar, it seems to be built well and not too hard to work on.

Russell Industries OWNS Projector Recorder Belt Company - PRB for short.

Outside of purchasing locally for expeditious reasons, I don't understand how the internet vendors survive selling belts for more than PRB offers them online.

800-645-2202 - No prices online, but I got belts for about 1.20 - 2.00 less than our local distributor was selling them for.

They also own EV Game - another belt/idler company. Russell Industries sold antennas and some technician aids for years, then expanded on opportunities.

My last order from them was in 2015 - and their website is still the same.
