    belt redrive for rotax?

    The belt drive modeled on the grab cad site is perfect An even better rendition would be to have the ID of the small pulley (crankshaft pulley) machined to accept the Male portion of a Lovejoy coupling. In that case no bending force is placed on the crankshaft This would accept a lot of...
