Generator Belt drive pulley 32 SC
The pulley driving the generator on my 32 SC has a damaged wall on 1 side, the iron cracked. I am afraid to run it as it will be out of balance. So I am seeking input to solve it> find the closest sub I can find? grind down the chipped side so that its even? try to get it welded?
Anyone know of a parts source for this? I am striking out. Thanks
If you can't find a new one, grind your old one down to clean it up, weld it up, and machine it down to make it like new. This is only my suggestion but others on the forum may have a better idea.
Hope this helps.

Lynn, you could also send an email out to all 1932 owners listed in the club roster and/or (if you have time to wait) submit a parts wanted ad to the magazine. You might also try messaging William Phillips on this forum as he is actively working on a 1929.
