Anyone know of a source who deals with metric pulleys?  I have a Yamaha tractor that destroyed it's RH spindle Pulley.  The pulley is no longer available through Yamaha sources so I'm trying to find an aftermarket one.

 

The pulley is:

OD: 127.000 or 5"

ID or Bore: is 20MM

Key: looks to be 3/16

 

Any help would be appreciated.

   Tractor supply company has lots of pulleys on hand, nothing metric but you could buy one with a smaller bore than open it up to fit rite.  or try surpluscenter.com, again they don't have metric but you could get one smaller then bore out.  Good luck

Is the groove area of the pulley still ok?  If so, I'd just weld all back together & it should be fine.  I've done many that way, and yours appears to be fine where it mates the center hub, so it should be centered fine to weld.

That's what I would do, too.

 

I don't know of anyone carrying a stock of metric pulleys in the style of McMaster-Carr.

I would agree to welding it back together. I'm surprised at the small amount of weld on it to start with. You can buy those weld hub pulleys at about any farm store, so cleaning this one up would be much different than a new one.

I thought about doing that but I'm a bit nervous about getting the bore centered correctly.  My welding skill's aren't that great. :wallbanging:

After reading through the tread last night and OCH's suggestion,  I got to thinking I could use one of the good pulley's to make a jig for it to sit in and then try to weld it.  Plus I must have had a DUH moment, the guy who owns the tractor is an excellent welder.  He has been mentoring me and got me started welding. 

 

I'll try and take pictures and keep you all updated on how this goes.  Thanks
