Seek Pulley for Duo-Art Steamboat Pump
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I've posted pictures of the pulley for the steamboat pump

After looking at it very carefully, I'm inclined to believe that it
was round before it started to 'explode' (corrode from the inside-out).
I also noticed one more important fact.  The pulley is shaped like
a pentagon, not a hexagon (it has five arms, not six).

The owner says he thinks it was made out of a zinc/nickel compound
(or perhaps 'pot metal').  Also, he would like to find someone who
makes or sells the leather drive belts.

Your comments and opinions are welcome.  Please post replies to the
MMDigest and/or write directly to me at
[delete ".geentroep" to reply].
