2GT vs GT2 compatibilty

So you sell 2GT belt ( but the drawing and ref say GT2) and GT2 pulley/idler( ref and drawing say GT2) but you say they aren't compatible.I bought a 16T pulley and a 20 T idler and the tooth profile look different even if they're all labeled as GT2

I'm totally confused .

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Aurel,

The Gates belts pulleys and idlers we sell are the 2GT standard.

Was this answer helpful?

In the Gates information page you correct an reported error and apologise, but then go onto quote a whole series of parts labelled GT2 rather than 2GT and all the drawings on the Gates documentation page also refer to GT2. So if I order from your page you are guaranteeing that they will all be compatible with each other despite the part numbers in the drawings ?


I am confused as well. I am going to download the Gates manual(s) and try to make some sense of it all....I have a headache!
