I bought a pack of small rubber bands and used one on my 490t...been working about a year or so now. Got a pic of it?

Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Sometimes the fix can be amazingly simple. Thanks to the guys here sharing knowledge when I first joined the forum I was able to fix the drawer open/close issue on our 490t with a womens rubber band hair tie from Wallmart. They just happen to be the exact same size as the original belt that was simply dried out from old age.
Another place you might be able to find a substitution is from some of the companies who make hoses, lines, and fittings for many race applications such as Earls Performance or Aeroquip.
