Mr. Pinball Tip:

Slipping belts such as the Ferris Wheel belt on Hurricane can be at least temporarily fixed by using automotive belt dressing. First clean the belt as much as possible. Spray the dressing into a disposable container such as a paper cup and apply using a Q-tip while belt is turning. Initially the belt will slip much more, but once applied let it sit and dry for a few hours. Afterward it will work nicely. Note that you do not need to remove the belt to do this.

This repair is only a temporary measure and eventually the belt will stretch and wear out such that nothing can save it.
