What is your intended use for this?
General cleaning of tapes? (not suggested!)
Mold removal?

The reason general cleaning is not suggested is because sometimes start to flake/shed. You have ONE attempt to recover the material with quality. Subsequent plays will be drastically reduced, with heavy noise on screen.

I'm having trouble finding the right size replacement belt for the PF-740 based on the size you suggested "106mm x 2mm x 2mm"

Ebay & Amazon have tons but I cant find that size. Any suggestion where to look?

Thank You.
