Where can I get the belt for shark vacuum model UV 208 C ?

Any local vacuum cleaner repair and sales store will have the belt, they are sold by size not necessarily by the maker of the vacuum. Bring the old belt with you of course.

New belt sold to me for model 116 , belt #20-40111 seems too small, is this possible?

A new belt is usually an inch or two shorter than an old belt. Belts must be stretched to almost twice their original length to be installed.

Schematic for placing belt on CR-711

Have a look on YouTube there are several good videos on replacing belts, otherwise you might have to end up paying for a manual just to fit the belt. You can try the Crosley website they might have a free PDF of the manual.

I have issues with belt squealing on Suzuki swift. The car is a 2005 (new model) 1.3 petrol. Just before Christmas the original 9 year old belt started to squeal and snapped, I replaced the belt and s

belts squeal for only 2 reason
it's bad. the belt.
or the accessorym it drives is Seized.

i guess you never head of a 5buck stethoscope
and listen to the accessory bearings, ah, alternator front and rear
i hear, front crying for help. easy as child play.
sold everywhere cars parts are sold.

there is no need to guess, , answer use tools.
this was true in 1920 and now, belts then and now all can squeal.
in the old days we had many belts and could drop them
then comes, SERP belts. one for all.
we dont have 1.3 swifts here, so cant see belt routing.

How to clean an Underwood 565 Electric portable typewriter

Remove all covers, and platen, spray with regular solvent/Marvel Mystery oil mix 50/50, don't spray to hard or you could unseat tiny springs, try to focus on the internal parts and stay away from the motor too, then blow the excess out with air and let sit overnite to air dry the rest. If you have a yellowish drive belt in the unit, you should remove it also before spraying. Once all is dry, reassemble and test. Wipe the platen with a fast drying spray solvent that won't eat rubber like Trichlor 111 or equivalent, no lacquer thinner or products containing toluene, Contact Cleaners work, all keys should move freely, I cannot recall the drive mechanism for the keys however, generally speaking, rubber parts need to be clean and dry, no oil there, small mechanisms should move without binding, some people spray WD40 in typewriters thinking they will free it up, NOT! WD40 BAD!
The aforementioned wash should restore it back if someone WD40'd it for ya, have fun with that. :)

How do you remove carriage on an underwood 565 typewriter

You don't want to do that, use an automotive brake cleaner and spray in the rails while moving the carriage back and forth, that should loosen it up, dis-assembly would unleash the angry mechanical gods upon you, might want to keep the spray away from the motor and belt as they are apparently scarce, otherwise toss it and find an old gray Underwood in good condition and go
