Hi folks. I'm wondering if Kirby put the new starburst design belt lifter on the 519s. I know they appeared on the 560s, but I've seen a couple of 519s that haven't been rebuilt and they had the new belt lifter design. Thanks.

It was 1960 that Kirby replaced the 519 with the 560, and the 560 was the first machine to use the belt lifter with the label design you describe.
