In my quest for this darned pulley (see other posts) I went to a salvage yard today. Must've seen 25 or more trashed riders in piles of scrap. There were some that I didn't even recognize. One was a GT, Mil green & dull silver metalic with LOTS of hydraulics. Small battery box on the RHS near seat. Hood was to far down to see what it was, but it looked bullet-proof. Found a MF10 frame,OLD looking JD snowthrower all crushed up,& lots & lots of old LT units. Under the pine trees were 2 or 3 shadows of 50's vintage stuff. I was afraid to sneeze around them. Didn't find a pulley, but saw some nice things one last time before they're gone... wish I'd thought to take a camera... the owner might have had an opinion on that tho...

I cringe everytime I think of an old GT going to the crusher...

Thought some about kicking the tires with the fella that owns the place, but The Mortgage Fairy comes next week.... Besides, my wife'd kill me at this point. If anyone's interested, It's in Shaekleyville PA at a place called Scofields.

What pulley are you looking for? That is pretty sad, thanks for not being too detailed.
