That is the new prototype for " The BilletFlow Pulley Mount Bracket".03snake said:Pete, no matter what the RPM, this belt never rubs itself? Damn that looks close......:jawdrop
Guys, meet the man that came up with this great idea, Larry.larryc7777 said:
I'm not sure on the more even distibution creating more radial pressure. I just can't work that one out in my little brain.larryc7777 said:If you think about how the SC shaft is stressed, you can see that the additional idler pulley will help to "even out" the downward pull, of the stock arrangement, into a more radial pressure that will be exerted on the shaft. Since the idler bracket is solidly bolted to the front cover & is located closer to the SC pulley itself, the idler pulley will absorb a portion of the tension pull & provide increased frictional surface area for belt contact. I'd call that a win win situation.
Remember that "static pressure", is when the engine is off & the only pressure exerted against the pulley is from the belt tensioner assembly. HOWEVER, when the engine is cranking 6000+ rpm, the force required to spin the SC rotors is considerably more. The more the boost is raised, the harder it is to spin the rotors.
Just curious, does anybody know how much HP the Eaton sucks up at 6400 rpm in order to produce 15 psi?
