you can get belts from Rec Supply in S'Toon or Agri Sport in Regina. Here are the numbers


1971 - Apache,Cherokee,Comanche MAX1034M3 HP3001 - 43 1/16" x 1 3/16"
1972 - Apache/Cherokee/Commanche/GT MAX1082M3 HP3014 - 43 1/2" x 1 1/4"
1973 - Apache/Cherokee/Commanche/GT MAX1082M3 HP3014 - 43 1/2" x 1 1/4"
1974 - Apache/GT MAX1082M3 HP3014 - 43 1/2" x 1 1/4"
1974 - The Wild One  MAX1034M3 HP3001 - 43 1/16" x 1 3/16"

The Max number is a Carlisle Ultimax ($58.96) and the HP number is a Dayco HP belt ($49.95)

So technical question,

on my 72 apache i have been using a 1106 belt which measures 43 5/16 not 43 1/2. What would suffer in this case? top speed?

 If the belt is shorter, and the center to center of the pulleys is set to spec, the belt would be pulled down in the secondary sheeve. so 0n the start you would have a little higher gear ratio, so the sled would be a little slower off the line.  It might be a mile or two faster on top end, it is not much of a difference so you may not even know. A tight belt that starts at the top of the secondary  worked best for me. just my opinion.
