James, my newly rebuilt s/g has a cast, 2&3/4" OD pulley. 1/2" opening at outside. ID look's to be 5/8" My re-builder recommended the larger dia. pulley which spins the motor faster for better starts. Good luck.

Watch out though for electrical generating rate. The higher drive ratio on the engine direction also means the generating aspect is slower when engine is running. It is a bit of a trade off.

Dentwizz has a good point. If youre engine doesnt spin fast enough with the stock pulleys you have other issues that should be dealt with and done right. I would think that you are better off using an original pulley so that the charging rate doesnt get screwed up.
