Ok guys, I already ran a search and read some great threads comparing the differences between hydro/belt drives. Still a little curious though... Tell me if this is right: The hydro is alot more forgiving, as far as labor and ease of use. The hydro is obviously more expensive. Im under the impression that the belt drive is a whole lot easier for a novice level mechanic, such as myself, to work on. Generally speaking, would you agree that the belt drives are less complicated/easier to replace parts on/etc? Which would be considered more durable, given routine maint. and TLC? Is one generally more rigid than the other?
