Balmar Pulley Size

Hi all,

The boat that I am in the process of buying needs the pulley changed on the "small" Balmar alternator. As it is, the belt sits too deeply (according to my mechanical surveyor). There are also signs that the alignment is off, so there is belt powder around (not good).

Do the pulleys come in different depths as well as diameters, or do you just shim the pulley for alignment? Sorry, I don't have the exact model number, as I don't own it yet.

Thanks, Bill
