    Hi Gary, here's a crowd for future reference, (single A belt series pulley example) Just need to find the right PCD, bore one to the right size for your motor, drill and tap for a grub screw and cut a keyway (can use the lathe for that). Cheapest way to do it. Lots of places in the UK sell pulleys a lot cheaper than you were talking about,- sounds like a rip-off to me, and probably just an aftermarket pulley anyhow, just in a Myford packet. Ali express has hundreds of cheap pulleys as well.

    Well done Gary, you have saved the day and returned the Super 7 to full working condition.
    With the flexibility of the Newton Tesla drive system fitted, the pressure to find a genuine replacement pulley has gone.
    You can take your time to find one at the right price, and they do come up on "the bay" from time to time.
    Sometimes you will see a grubby old Myford motor that still has a decent pulley attached for better price than a pulley on its own!

    Hi Bob, and a bit of an update from this end, although I will try to replace the motor pulley when possible. A couple of photos for you, the damaged Mk1 pulley, the cut-down Mk11 version fitted to the motor. The third one is the mess I made on the Chinese lathe whilst machining the pulley, small chips, and a very fine powdered dust. (Fairy-dust.) Regards, Gary. (The painting is almost complete, and managed another good session today.)
