primary belt drive on old shovelhead

Has anyone switched from a primary chain to belt drive? If so, did you notice any difference or was it a waste of $$$$$$?
I'm in the middle of my rebuild and am thinking of switching

Everyone I've ever talked to that has switched say they like it. The only down side is you never know when it's going to break.If you do go to a belt remember to vent your primary case.

Good Luck !!

thanks....It's either the belt or stay with the chain and make an oil bath in the primary.
