    Anyone know where I can find a 4.5" or 5" pulley that has a 6 rib serpentine belt and a .750" keyed bore? I'm adding a Vickers V10 vane pump in place of the power steering pump to drive my plows, power steering and hydro boost brakes. I've been searching the net but no luck. I thought I found one that fits a Vortech blower and I ordered it, turned out to have a .786" bore.
    Thanks for any leads.

    You can't sleeve that pulley for the .030 that's needed

    Or weld up the bore and turn it back down to the size you want. Vortech pulley is aluminium right. Or weld a sleeve in it as suggested.

    Thanks for the ideas, however, I have tried all the outfits mentioned above, yes, I may have to build my own bore pulley, or try and shim it, but I was hoping to find something off the shelf. I thought this would be a simple thing to find. :confused:
