Need Clausing 1501 Drive belt or info

Im getting ready to put my Clausing 1501 back in service, but need a drive belt..the Varidrive belt blew off shortly after I brought it home.
Clausing wants $108 plus $15 shipping for a $35 belt. Anyone have any belt numbers or sizes that will fit properly? Also need either a copy, a photograph or? of the speed/feed charts...they of course are completly wiped out on my lathe

A $35.00 belt is going to make for an incredibly loud lathe which due to excessive vibration will only be capable of producing work to rather crude tolerances.

Really? Odd...OmniTurn belts are only $15 at most places such as bearing houses and what not.
So tell me the difference between a $108 belt and a $35 belt.
Im very interested as I do machine tool repair for a living.
