Re: Looking for 5" Alternator Pulley
Thanks CapnChuck, but I've tried that. I've also tried searching the internet for a 5", single groove, 10 mm belt size, 17mm shaft pulley and am not coming up with what I need to ensure a correct fit. The only option left is to get an original pulley and bore out the shaft to the diameter I need to fit my already bought new alternator. It has a 17mm shaft. I still have my original 5" pulley on a rebuilt sev marchal alternator, but I don't want to risk messing that one up by boring the hole, thus the reason for the search.
Alternator shops and many other places have pulleys, but in order to keep the 2.5:1 drive to pulley ratio, I need the 5" pulley. Most of the pulleys I've come across are no larger than 3" now. About my only option is to keep searching for an old original sev marchal pulley.
Thanks all for helping me try and solve the problem. Keep it up please...until I find that pulley. :-)
