I believe 16k is the original belt replacement recommendation.

the belt is 13 years old. I'd say it's probably not in the best shape? I'll tear into it this weekend

I would replace the belt as soon as you can. If it is 13 years old I'm sure it is about shot and I know I would not trust it myself.

   I think you should definitely replace it after going to the introduction page and introducing yourself to the good people who were willing to help with your query.
