Pulley Size

Post by steamman on Sun Apr 06 2014, 11:53

Hi, on my Lister H2 pump I  have a V belt pulley which is 8 1/2" dia. where the belt sits, I have a choice of 8" or 6" dia. V belt pulleys for my Lister D engine, could somebody tell which size would be the most suitable.
Thank you, Bernard.

I would use the 6 inch one as the pump doesn't need to rotate at engine speed.

I'd go for the smaller, having said that some H2 pumps were direct drive so running at 700rpm must be fine for them.
