I took the final piece off the parts MF12 to Complete the acc'y I want to end up putting on the Scrap Massey when I restore it. Bad news was what I found.

Here is the drive pulley. Seems to be something wrong.

I called all over and couldn't find a replacement. Decided I would attempt to repair this one.

The bushing with the keyway made a good alignment & mount candidate and the other side of the pulley is sandwiched up against another (unkeyed) spacer. When it's on there, it's very tight now. It'll do until I can find another or have to make one myself.

The OD is 2 3/4, the bore is 1 1/8, the belt is 3/8"... "Cant get it" and "Odd Sized" were the most common responses

I about wore out the phone trying different Massey Dealers, Parts Places, etc. No luck yet... Like I said, this'll do for now.

What is that pulley from? Is it a drive pulley from an attachment?

Alan I know that you can get pulleys from a local source up here that you weld or bolt to an adapter. The adapters have a fixed OD that fits the pulleys and you select the adapter with the ID needed for your driveshaft. There are bolt on pulleys and weld on ones. You should be able to get these at a local driveline supplier if you can't find what you need used. Given the number of these MF tractors out there you should find something.

The 2.75 od isnt the issue, as i can get them all day long, the 1-1/8 bore though , that is a bit large, so you have it bored and broached is all, easy peasy!

Just wondering, what/why a 3/8" belt? The only 3/8 I've come across, is for starter/gen.
