Default Lower Pully Question

Just installed a Metco lower pulley and noticed that it is not centered. I was under the impression that they were self-centering. Anyone have any insight on this?

Good For You!!! You will be happy with that lower set up!! I had mine installed by Deans Performance so I dont know anything about the centering aspect but I am sure that someone on here will know!!

Good Luck!!

The main inside hub that comes with the kit and mounts too the crank does not center itself on the crank pulley. It mounts flat and parallel like it should but when you start the motor you can see it moves a like a cam, loping. Before I did this I read a lot of posts and somewhere one said (can't find it now) that you need to be careful and ease this hub on because it fits snug on the inside lip of the crank pulley. Mine just went on plus had lots of play as well. So that's what I mean by self centering, Or do you have to center it yourself.

Yes, thats what I'm talking about. Should this locate itself or do I need to locate it, Or is there a locater in the kit that I am missing.

I'll have to call and find out, because nothing else came with the kit and there is nothing in the instructions for locating.

If I have too, I'm pretty confident I can indicate it into center. Pain in the [email protected]@ though.

Thanks for your help Bob.

I didnt notice this problem with mine. I just bolted the pulley ring to the hub and that was all.

The problem I had was the belt riding on the very outside of the idler pulley that mounts down by the crank. I have to use a washer to shim it out to put the belt more towards the center of the pulley.

I got it, took a while but I'm at about .0005 runout right now. That's pretty good for a 8"+ dia. ring. It was at .0223 when I checked it after I first put it on.

NOW IT"S TIME TO PLAY

This shouldn't be necessary.
I have yet to have this problem.
Looks like Metco is getting pretty sloppy.
The hub should fit tight enough to locate itself on the crank.
Initally they were powder coated and the coating had to be cleaned to allow the hub to slide onto the crank, but apparently, with the plain hubs, this is no longer an issue.

Must Be getting sloppy, Mine didn't come close to self centering. I did end up getting it centered though, just took a while with a dial indicator and a shit load of luck.
