In Search Of......

.... a 47 tooth pulley for a two inch BDL belt that would fit on a spline shaft.


About a week ago my front pulley flew off and into some tall prairie grass but probably made it's way into the nearby pond. I searched the area high and low on a few different occasions with no luck of finding it. I'm not sure exactly how many teeth were on it but I do know the rear(clutch hub) has 76 teeth on it. My friend Mike gave me a 45 tooth pulley but it seems to be to small since the belt is very loose. I haven't done the math yet but I don't want to loose any on the top end. I think I need something like a 47 tooth pulley? Anyone know the math on the right ratio? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This was my set up before it flew apart

same thing happened to me on the 10 freeway just west of LA and in the interim i amassed a pile of crank pulleys of all tooth counts before i got a whole new belt drive setup, let me check.
