Sorry. No luck. I only have a 3.4" pulley.
Damn you for getting my hopes up...
Let me know what Reichard quotes you..
Will do. This will be a winter project as I am moving a few things around to help with improving driveability. This car has always been a bit of a pain to drive in traffic due to the BOV and MAF location. Also looking to possibly move my smaller water injection nozzle a few inches away from teh blower inlet.
I am also open to a 3" pulley if someone has an extra from the group buy.
Off topic :
Anyone with a Procharger pulley ? This 2 5/8" is smaller than I want . Maybe 3 1/4" .
Reichard pulleys are a waste of money...been there done that.
Now I send my pulleys here http://carbiniteracing.com/ and the coefficient of friction is ridiculous !
You're welcome !
I didn't know these guys existed. I might just coat my current Reichard Pulley with this.
gmorrell posted this a while ago. Seems they are able to do aluminium now.
Ive had 3 aluminum pulleys coated now. Great service and fast turnaround !
Wow! A thread from 5 years ago!!
Here is some info: The 2.8" Reichard Pulley is actually a 2.85", changes the max revs of the Supercharger up a couple hundred or so RPM.
I found out, through a lot of trials, that the Reichard Pulleys only works well with a straight cut belt. Gates does wonderful, Dayco (advanced auto) does well for the money.
Cool, thanks Mike, running a RR pulley, so far ok, although the pulley bore was out of spec by .001" but fixed it with some anodizing, also never use gatorbacks, Gates greenback or gates, Dayco is fine too for the money.
I have one that is 3.200 that is cut the correct way but I also have the pulley on backward I made my bracket my self to fit an atx with more than 50% belt wrap besides.
Since Reichard is out of business, here is a great (maybe even better) alternative:
I’m going to be getting one soon.
If it requires a group buy to get them made to mount backwards for the SHO, I'd be in. The way they are now it would still require removing the compressor to press off the pulley.
