Do any of the dealers sell an original type crankshaft pulley for a 27 T?. After chasing an elusive knock in my engine, I found that the holes in the pulley for the crank pin were worn and allowing the pulley to move radially. The hole in the crankshaft is ok and the pulley fits tightly on the end of the crank. If new ones are not available and I can't find a good new one, I guess I could have the old one repaired. Any suggestions welcome.
Those pulleys do like to wear a little strange. You can get some varies sizes of shim stock material, cut to 1" widths, and tighten the ole girl up. Using a little LocTite Red helps hold the shims together to the pulley/crankshaft. You can still remove the pulley when required. I have found shim stock in .003" thru .006 works well. Align and punch hole using a #2 phillips screw driver.
If your pulley is other wise good, and the only problem is that the pin holes are oversize, you could have someone with a lathe drill your pulley at 90 deg to the original holes.
Thanks guys. Pulley is good other than worn pin holes. I'll Take it to a machine shop to have it re-drilled.
Dave: To answer your original question: Yes, Snyder's should still have late version as we made them for him.
We purposely made the I.D. Smaller so that it would be a tight fit for each worn crank.
I have a couple, sent pm, Bob
they run 95.00 plus postage, Bob
Or weld up the worn holes and redrill.
we have both early and late in stock, limited supply, Bob
Any re-drilling; Do not forget one hole is smaller on the outside of the pulley then the other so the pin can only come out one way.
Bob. Private message sent. Will call tomorrow
