I recently purchased a Bush Hog TM5 finish mower that is missing both flat idler pulley assemblies, part number 12661. Would anyone happen to know the equivalent part though another distributor? One site has the part retailing at $70 per pulley, which is far above what I am willing/able to pay.
Is this the same pulley? RM Discount Alternatively, does anyone know the specifications of the pulley? SiS Click

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

If you know the measurements on the pulley you should be able to find a replacement at places like grainger, surplus center, and there is another one that has escaped my brain cells at the moment.

I would think that close would work here...they are the flats and the only difference if they are smaller would be some belt length difference. You may be able to make it up with the adjustments.

Aussiedog, I don't have this brand, but the idler pulley measurements may come in handy for something else. I may have one of these on my Sears. Thanks for posting the info.
