Wouldn’t say I’m a pro or expert but had struggles finding a belt as mines needed a 1080
Went to euro car parts.... hopeless.....

Then went to a local place called Galloway industrial  I think....

Do machine belts for factories etc

Cost like a tenner and arrived next day..
advice would be don’t go to car bit but industrial shop instead

That what you're after? The last one i got was off amazon, but that was a few years back, quarter of the price as well.

Search "1000-8M-20 Timing Belt" on amazon, looks like they still have them.

The 1000 8m ones mine uses an Optibelt Omega HP 1000 8m, (20mm wide) I did a couple of thousand miles no issues but hasnt been used in 9 years, I' spoke with Optibelt and bought direct £25 posted per.

Optibelt Warrington 01925 415777 iirc

Mine toothies are the Austrian ones people were buying a few years back.
