Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Aluminum Crank Pulley

The original pulley on my 1914 was very loose and worn, so I ordered an aluminum adjustable pulley from Snyder's. Well, the new pulley is slightly larger than the original, and will not fit on the end of the crank because of interference from rivets on the pan. According to Snyder's, this pulley should go on with the pan in place.

Of course it's Saturday, and they're closed, so I can't call them.

Has anyone dealt with this?

3 different pulley sizes
From your picture you have one size up

Yes I have. I just lightly ground down the rivet heads that were in the way.

Even with the right size, the aluminum pulleys have outer ridges to help keep the belt on. On my 15 with the narrow snout, there is barely room to get the belt on. You may not be able to use this type of pulley, or go to a smaller size if possible.

My aluminum pulley had no ridges. I specifically ordered that one because it's supposed to go on with the pan in place.
I think I may make two small notches in the pulley to clear the rivets.
