I am now going to have to seriously start hunting for pulleys for these motors and something I can use to make up the extra weight I need to add to the pulley. If I can get pulleys with enough depth in them I can fill them with lead, otherwise I have to turn up discs I can weld to the pulleys. Does anybody have any suggestions? Pulley is around 80mm in diameter

Hi Norm,

For me the 3 easiest choices would be one ,modify a Auto drive pulley from the seventies or eighties Victa mower as I've seen a lot of damaged Auto drive mowers in scrap ,they are 80 mm and take a 3/8 v belt ,2nd would be just machine up a new pulley on a lathe out of scrap steel and machine the centre out so
you can weld in a Victa blade plate hub ,third would be buy an old Victa edger that you can remove the pulley from as I've seen a few for sale at garage sales and swap meets for $10, to $15.


Some people have already banned the use of lead wheel weights so I guess it's only a matter of time and scrap lead will be harder to find.

Cheers
Max.

Hi Max,
I did use on off a PT edger but it gave me a lot of grief because it was so big in diameter to start with. I had to cut it down with the oxy and then put it in my lathe because my lathe is Myford 7 and it is slow going. I guess I will get some 80mm discs laser cut and then turn them up from the blanks. Getting to be a real problem when I pick these slashers up with no motors on them or somebody has dummied up some sort of pulley.

Yes If it was me I would stay away from a PT motor on a Victa 24 if I was missing the pulley Norm , just convert the PT 24's to full crank 2 stroke and if I
didn't want to spend time looking for a mower etc to get a pulley off ,I would buy a new pulley and adapt that.

I didn't realize you had a Myford 7 Norm ,thought you were using a larger lathe.A new pulley that could be adapted is around $15. posted or possibly find
some old car alternators and use a pulley from that.

Cheers
Max.

Hi Max,
that pulley would do the job just need to bore it to suit the PT blade boss. Same problem with the full crank motors I don't have any spare pulleys for those either
Maybe I can use these pulleys and press them down to make them into an "M" section pulley. I guess the only way I will find out is to get a few and try

Hi Norm,

I have a self drive Victa pulley here if you want it Norm,it would need modifying to fit a 24 also found a Ariens mower in a scrap bin
the other day when at the tip and grabbed the drive gear if you need it ,just about every time I throw out electrical items into the
recycle bin at the tip there are good working drills in the bin so I grabbed some drills and they both work good.

Cheers
Max.

Thanks Max,
I want to try and get a couple of loads down there as well, hopefully before Christmas. Fish pond has had me bogged down for months but hopefully it can chug along from now on with little maintenance
