Do U need a 4" PULLEY for conversion?

Post by Wilcoy02 »



I have been looking for a pulley for a year or so.
Finally met up with Melvin who was having a pulley made for a very reasonable price.

I contacted the machinist Greg who was doing the work.
He made Melvin a pulley for a v-belt and mine with a serpentine belt.

Greg said he can punch the pulley out in short time as he has his CNC Machine programmed for the pulley's.
They are made out of aluminium and 4" wide. Very tight fit on the motor.

If you would like to purchase one or two send me a PM and I'll get you the info to order one.
He has the pulley for the 1100 and 1200. The 1000 has a different bolt hole thru the pulley.

Greg, the machinist, told me I could post the pulley was available but he will give a price. I do not feel his phone number should be posted on a forum as he did not give me permission to do that.

PM me for that info if interested.
