Fostex X-26 motor Sankyo SHW2R alternative and belts replacement kit


New member
Hello to all.

I have a malfunctioning Fostex X-26, that I think the problem is a dead motor. I can't find anywhere a Sankyo SHW2R for sale but I've read on another thread that a EG530YD-2B could be a replacement. Can anyone please confirm it? Or can anyone please recommend an alternative?

I also need to buy a replacement belts kit for this Fostex model, can anyone recommend an online store that send to Europe or a generic replacement kit that will work with this model.

Thank you very much in advance.
