Pulley Size?????

Recommended Posts

RickS
Bunky, I just came in from measuring the pulley on my starter generator. The pulley was 2 3/4 inches in diameter. This starter generator starts a 16 horse. If it helps, the tractor is a 3416H. This is a used starter generator off an unknown tractor, but the pulley is from the original starter. You may remember an early post about my cracked starter generator. Hope this helps, and let me know if you need more information. Rick.........

I have two starter-generators. One has a machined pulley like the one on yours, the other has a stamped metal pulley. The machined pulley looks smaller, but the main "V" area measures to be the same. I guess the stamped pulley is just larger because of the excess metal that is rolled over to prevent sharp edges. The backside of the belt sits flush with the machined pulley while the belt sits below the outer edge of the stamped pulley. The actual working diameter of the two appear to be the same. This was a question that bugged me when I first got the one with the machined pulley. Already had the other. Came to the conclusion that they both functioned the same.
