Need pulley for generator

Recommended Posts

I need a pulley for a 955R Delco-Remy generator. Does anyone know of a source for these?

 

 Thanks, Steve

I’ve got my NAPA guy looking. Just trying to find out if there’s someone out there that specializes in generator parts.

I have looked thru several of my original Delco-Remy parts manuals and none of them show a pulley part number. Which tells me that the vehicle manufacturer supplied the pulley not Delco-Remy. I do have an assortment of pulleys. I might have something but can't promise.

Jeff,

 

I took a couple of pictures of the pulley. It has the number 3SA55 and a letter N on it. It is 3 7/8” OD with a 17mm bore, uses a 5/8” wide belt and the hub is offset approximately 1/16” from the generator side surface. The bore of my pulley is worn oversized causing the pulley to wobble on the shaft so I’m looking for one with a tight bore. 

 

Thanks for looking, Steve

If it is cast iron, I know a foundry that will cast it.   I have reproduced generator pulleys for Auburns.    You will have to balance it.

1932 REO Model S sedan. Yes it has a woodruff key in the shaft. I have managed to get a 0.001 shim in the bore about 2/3 the way around the shaft but I don’t expect that to be a trouble free solution.

Looked thru my pulleys. The closest I have is for 26-28 Chevys and Pontiacs. It is smaller in diameter by about 1/2". From the back side to the center of the v is just over 1/2".

What is the condition of the bore? Is it 17mm? Is that a set screw I see in the first picture? I do have a lead on one off of a REO but am waiting to hear from him.

Including shipping I would like $25.00.

Jeff, I’m still waiting to hear from the possible original pulley. I’d prefer to have one with the correct diameter if I can find one. I’ll let you know.

Take your time. If you can get the correct part you are better off. But at least this gives you an option and you can always keep up the search. You can never have enough parts for these old vehicles.

I have  one. I would think a small rate box shipping would do. Send me a pm on what you think is a fair price.

There is a REO frame,cowl and engine sitting in a guy's parts repository in Julesburg Colorado about that year that might be available. Don't remember much but there was no carb and the manifold hole was uncovered looking up catching rain and snow. Could probably look up the guy's name and phone number if interested. Not sure how you PM on this site but that would probably be best.

Sagefinds, I have found a pulley but I may need some other parts he has. Click on my forum name and it will bring up a screen that will allow you to PM me.
