  • Slowing down the pinwheel

    Hello I have a few pinwheels that I would like to slow down. Does anyone know the granger part nuumber for the pulley that will do this.

    I know I have seen a thread on this before.

    Thanks in advance.

        Becareful, the part # king gave is for 4 1/2 in pulley. Most mechanics use 5 in pullies. I have the part # for 5 in pullies at work. I can get that for you tomorrow if needed. 4 1/2 in runs real slow and can result in head first pins on the dist.

              I have a few machines that, no matter where I put the damn kidney, I get head first feeds occasionally with the 5 inch pulleys, so I just stuck the 6 inchers back on and the problem is gone. Do they make a 5 1/2 inch pulley? And if so, what is the Grainger p/n for that?
              Thanks!

                Vantage makes an adjustable pulley pn # V 000-024-598. It works great their just a tad bit spendy.
                There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

                  Yeah AMF makes the adjustable too. I'm not really fond of those..kinda gets a bit too tight between the gearbox and the rear control box when you start widening the pulley to slow the pinwheel down.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">We noticed that issue here too. What we did was loosen the 1/4 x 20 bolts holding the clamps for the rear control box and slide the boxes more towards the rear. Re-tighten bolts. It might be necessary to remove the 2 rear bolts (1 on each side) and leave them out. The boxes will do just fine without them. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

                      use 5 inch cast not alum.that is in pict.they sometimes break.Ifyou have 60cy motors use 5in.If you have 50cy.use 4in.Also you should use 188in.pinwheel belt.Play with kidney adj.and you will stop head first feeds.I service 11 centers and have few jams.I just call stahls and order both 5in.cast.pinwheel pulley and 188 pinwheel belt.
