The belt I got for the DB Weed-Cutter gets a 90* twist . It  came notched . Can that be used in this application  ?

I would think it would make it harder to stay on, but that's me.

I'm not and expert on belts but that cured a problem I had with a belt coming off. Makes it more flexible I guess. 

Good luck Gratton

Cog belts are more flexible.  You may have to run it a bit tighter but it should work just fine. 
When the two sides start to contact each other at the twist is when problems occur with cog belts.   Good luck.
