Well 6061 aluminum is pretty much the standard for most things made and along with the hard anodizing should make things last for a while.

Ken,
I'm interested in 1 set, maybe more depending on the price.

Thanks for doing this,

Well I have some answers The fan pulley is available now for $79 plus shipping. The only idler pulley that is available right now is the one from Ray Sedman for $142.50 and it is a totally rebuildable bearing if the need arises. I know the idler is a bit expensive but it is well worth the money because you will never have to press the bearing apart to replace it!

If anyone is interested in either part let me know I still may work on getting a stock type aluminum idler pulley if there is interest in that.

If anyone would like any of the items please let me know and I'll get the arrangements made. Please use my EMAIL! PM's will probably take longer.

As far as the Nash Fan I don't know if Kevin has said anything about this but there is work being done on the fan pulley to increase air flow. I'm sure it will compliment the Nash fan nicely.

Yes, the air flow pulley has been revised considerably from my prototype! all the fillets that I wanted to put in on mine and couldn't (too difficult/impractical to do on a manual) are in, the top portion has a much more generous arc to it and the all important underside is very different in that it has a nearly constant area flow path, and made to work properly with the fan base shape, and much better filleting. There "might" be another tweak concerning the bearing cap.

Its been pretty freaking cool to me to see how well my crude one off pulley works, it is really fun to see how strips of paper will always point towards the air flow passages in the pulley, but if the strips are far enough to the outside of the pulley (1/2-3/4"), then suddenly they change their preference and want to go down and towards the fan shroud opening. This effect is particularly intense with the guide vane style bells that I've developed.
It is going to be freaking awesome to see how much more output this whole package gains over my prototype!

I would like a aluminum pulley for my stock 110 engine. It would get rid of at least one dissimilar materials joint I have with the aluminum fan bearing housing I am using on the engine I will put together. Plus more weight off the fan assembly to be turned by the belt.

The pulley is slightly lighter and when you couple that with the aluminum hub the combo is very light.

I must stress that if you are interested to please send me an email. Posting here I can't save anything and I will not go back through posts to try and add up numbers.

Thanks
