Hello Carl.
If Rob can't help you with information you need then I should be able to find ours in the shed and get pictures and dimensions etc.

Has yours got the belt pulley? We've been looking for a belt pulley for a 2 stroke.

Cheers Scott

Hello Cobba
Thanks for the offer but the Barlow pulley and tensioner are, how can I say this??.....well weird. In the picture below you can see a gear just to the left of the flywheel. The pulley is driven off this gear. The round casting to the left of the gear is where the pulley 'holder-upperer' sits and the pulley rotates around this bit of round casting. The rotation gave the belt it's tension so you could 'idle'a machine or have it driven by pulling the lever with the weight on it. The adjustable weight gave adjustable tension.
I do have some patent details in some documents but they're not on this computer it seems :mad:
Anyways, they're kinda similar to the type D's below below. They weren't just a belt drive. They were also a gear reduction and belt drive as seen in the video.

Cheers Scott
