Belt Drive

Hi Folks I'm new to the forum. I just bought my first 1942 WLA and its a total basket case. I have a question regarding primary belt drives for my machine. Does anyone have opinions, advice or otherwise on using one instead of the chain setup?
Thanks, Leo

Great thanks a lot for the info, and I have read posts about not using rollers on the hub.
