Re: Edson Rusted Idler Plate

Probably not know until you remove it. It may clean up just fine. If you have to make a new one at least you have an easy pattern.If you have to use headed bolts to hold the pulley brackets to the. plate some fender washers(spacers) on the long bolts could hold off the assembly from the glass 3/8 wouldn't change the angle

Why not bronze plate ! 510 bronze .125 12x12 inch is $142 1/8th is $86 ! bronze nuts on the s.s. bolts no more worries ! Easy to work with ! @ On Line Metals ! Not affiliated ! Just checked on line ! If you go s.s. plate you have to stop the leakage to prevent crevice corrosion !

So, I pulled the plate & went at it with a hammer & a chisel.

Knocked a lot of rust out & there are a few new holes in the plate - but I think I got to it in time. The plate seems solid once I got the rust scale off.

I just ordered some ospho. Next week ospho treatment & 3 coats of rustoleum. Hope that does it.

Re: Edson Rusted Idler Plate

How easy was it to take off? I have to do mine too. Bought the new parts (backing plate, sheaves and chain) more than 4 years ago. Almost ready to get started on it in earnest now

Not hard. All you will have to do is cut the old wire & undo 4 bolts.
