I've located only one supplier who manufactures replacement rubber conveyor belts for the Corgi FC-150 and I've looked at the conveyor castings and how they are attached and am concerned about reassembling the mechanism after its disassembly. In order to replace the two (2) Belts that appear to come in an already attached loop, the following need to be taken apart.  The two halves of the main support body are held together by two standoffs that each have one sided dimples on the tip end. Once this dimple is drilled away, what would be the accepted procedure to reattach these ends without the benefit of re-dimpling the support? The other issue is that both “upper” and “lower” conveyors have “U” Shaped cast arms that allow for up and down adjustment. These two arms are attached to the conveyors swivel on two points and I think they are zinc. It will require the U shaped support to be spread apart to allow for removal, but will they spread without the Zinc cracking?
Requests to the supplier for instructions before ordering these have gone unanswered thus far as I don’t wish to attempt this without first knowing this is within my capabilities to successfully replace.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated as this Little Corgi is in great condition after it was gifted to me me 55 years ago….
