Default Need a source

I am looking for a source for multi-rib belt pulleys. This is also known as a serpentine belt for cars.
There are J,K,L,M profiles. J profile is the common industrial multi-v belt. K is the automotive multi-v profile.

Last time I had to do this I made a 13" pulley for an 8 groove belt, for a K belt which is the standard automotive belt. The biggest pain is rolling a piece of 1.25 x 1/2" stock into a semi-true circle and centering and welding it on a plate.
After that it is just machining.

So I'm looking for an easy way out.

How many belts/pulleys you need? Diameter and bore?

Only one for 8K belt at 11 inch OD, and the bore is a taperlok and I forgot the taper size, but it goes on a 1.5" shaft.

Are you talking "Poly V" belts, Gerry? Browning was the originator of the design but I'm sure there are other manufacturers out there now. I have a Browning catalogue but it's at the shop. I can look up some part numbers tomorrow if you want.

There must be a number of power transmission outfits in Edmonton. I'm sure Motion Industries will have a warehouse there. Almost certain to be other local sources as well...

I think you can get them from Wajax. Here is the local store but perhaps there is a store near you? You can probably dig around the website to find the nearest one.

https://www.wajax.com/location/thunder-bay/

Another place I have used are bearing suppliers like

Good luck

Sorry Gerry

I read that wrong. I was thinking belts...but either place might be able to access pulleys too...?

Not a chance, you'd have better luck buying a metric twist drill in a hardware store.

Pol-v and Multi-v are trade names, Gates owns Multi-v.
Motion says they can't supply as of yesterday. One of their employees told me they could order them from Browning, he thought. But only J profile.


I have found them only up to 4.2" diameter for driving alternators at where I got the chart.
