Photo What glue to use???

Hi......

I'm working on putting a LeRoi MH 3 power unit back on a cart with a large air compressor. Many years ago the LeRoi was removed and replaced with an electric motor and at that time the drive was changed from a flat belt to a vee belt system with three belts. You can see a few pictures of the rig at:
http://www.oldengine.org/members/levans/leroi/

Since the LeRoi has a large flat belt pulley I plan on modifying the compressor pulley by glueing pieces of vee belt into the grooves so the flat belt will have a good grip. The vee belting I have is a good fit to the groove and stands just a little proud of the surface so should make a good surface for the flat belt. Take a look at the pictures below to see what I mean.

Question is what glue to use. At the moment I'm thinking either Weldwood Contact Cement or Barge Cement but I am open to suggestions or comments.

Regards,
Larry Evans

Use Contact Cement for that aplication. I have used it for many different applications and have had very good luck with it. It will not let go unless the temp risees above 120 degrees or more.

I use it for gluing rubber to steel wheel all of the time and have not had a problem.

Follow the directions on the can !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i might be wrong but i think your going to want to somehow crown the center of that pulley so that the flat belt will always try to ride the high center.

Larry:

I agree with the suggestion that the pulley needs to be crowned to hold the flat belt centered. This would complicate the arrangement.

What I'd suggest is that you get three Vee belts to match the Vee belt pulley and drive them off the flat belt pulley of your engine.

I've done that a few times with no problems.

Good luck and take care - Elden

Why not use a 'banded' V belt? You can get a triple-wide one easily, and it'll run fine on a flat-belt pulley.

I've had good luck with these folks:

Ray:

The first set of molds we made when I was back in KY weren't optimum and neither of us was happy with 'em. Frank is going to use different release agent and compound then he'll make another set of molds to see if he can do better.

As soon as we have acceptable prototypes, I'll let everyone know so I'll know how many sets to have cast. Anyone interested should remember that we're only going to do one run of production castings and they will be sold unfinished and at our cost.

Take care - Elden
