Hi everyone,

was wondering what sort of pulleys are used on most of the shaft drives for lift. Are they just very thin HTD because i cant find anything like them! Like the ones you use Nick.

And wish me luck, im chopping up my TZR today!

Hi Pete,

I used H100 for mine. It ran well.

I think some of the others have used narrower belts but I liked the H100.

A while back I wrote up this:

Q & A, ...a few questions about gears and belts (www.hoverclubofamerica.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=555)

I ended up using something from a company called Weiand. (for more details, see attached links) These pulleys are originally intended for blower engines, but can easily be machined down to fit a more narrower belt
