FOUND!! : Variable Ratio Pulley
Posted by: 63turbo ()

I'm looking for a variable ratio pulley... it can either be a early or late style. I only need the pulley, not the other stuff that normally comes with it.

I have one I'll probably never use. Pm me you email or a number to text and I'll send you a couple pictures.

If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the going rate on a variable pulley ?

This one is an Eelco and was cheaper. But hopefully will do Kevin some good instead of just sitting in a shelf.

The variable ratio pulleys (yes I bought 2 of them!!) are indeed being put to good use. I'm using them to help with my fan development project, as I will need to have my "airflow" pulleys available to my "gang of brave early adopters" in various pulley ratio's to fine tune the fan output for their particular application and set-up, and having a pulley that I can set the ratio to is great to have for design and checking purposes. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to have a complete variable ratio kit so as to be able to put it on one of my testers car and test to see what ratio will best fit their needs, just in case! The other thing is that eventually I would like to do a "airflow pulley" version of the variable ratio pulley, with a twist... This one, because I already need to have the ability to raise or lower the fan, and raise or lower the pulley independent of one another, lends itself to the variable ratio pulley idea, as one of the buggers with the original was that only the 1.2:1 ratio would have the pulley sheaves at the stock height, leading to alignment problems if the faster ratios were used without changing the height of the fan bearing! my version of this would allow
for numerous ratios and not change the pulley height... just change a set of shims so no messing with the fan bearing height. It became clear to me quite a while ago that as the fan pulley gets larger, the more important the airflow pulley becomes as the intake becomes massively blocked at these larger sizes so the venting works better!
