Guys, I was looking through an industrial mag we get here at work, this company was advertising in the back. If someone wants to do some research, this maybe a possible company to get these deck parts from. Not sure if they carry belts that would work, but the pulleys maybe promising. Who knows, send them some pulleys and belts, they maybe able to make something.

unless they are unique, you should just neet to know the pitch, belt width, bore and #of teeth and should be able to order standard timing belt pullies. Has anyone checked McMaster Carr, Reid tool supply or Carr Lane?

You can find the pulleys, the problem is getting the spline right in the center. I have been doing some research on these for a good while. I can get them made, but they are too expensive to use or sell.

I see. I will be heading down this road this winter as I just picked up a 1650 and plan on going through the deck this winter.
In the past I have "cheated" on some splines several ways. I have wire burned the female spline, that got a bit expensive. Or we had a broach made by the same method, again that was expensive. The cheap way was to make a broach out of an old shaft, that worked ok in soft material. Not perfect but cheaper than having a run at the local gear company.
Any thought about reproducing or modifying the shaft to match up with an available pully?

What I have found is that the 41 tooth sprocket that Massey used is not a standard configuration. I was able to have a shop make that 41 tooth stock and plan on making these to replace any worn pulleys. That way all exsisting parts will still work with the new pulleys. I am going to broach the internal spline to fit the exsistiing blade shafts. I do not have a solid # but I do feel these will be quite reasonabley priced. The first run of pulley stock had a flaw in the base matterial and they are running it again so I am still waiting on some of the parts to make this all come together.
We are in the height of Poo hauling and chopping corn silage up here right now so bear with me till we can get all the parts together to make this happen.

^^^ That'd be great!!! No hurry here...I plan on keeping my deck forever, so anytime in the next 40 years or so will be fine!
