painting/ restoring and putting on a bigger top pulley 924128 1332 le

Man its been alot of work stripping this blower for paint i should have had it sand blasted
Paint........ I have 10 cans of chevy engine paint 4 cans gloss black 2 cans flat black 2 cans gloss silver
Its all primed i think it will take 3 cans in the bucket 3 on the outside bucket and 2 cans for the chute
New stainless hardware for the new scraper blade and drift cutters and shoes
Iam painting the rakes and fan today
Hoping to use 3.25 top pulley unsure how to figure belts as it only 1/4 taller from what i see ( hoping shaw will pipe in ) iam following his build
going to put a tach on it
and trying to figure out the roller blade wheels for skids i got the scooter wheels and bearings as 1 poster said they are larger hole but the 3/8 carriage bolt still wont fit through
Sucks not having a proper shop or tools to do this it takes much longer to make it nice lol
pics to come soon

I agree, it is a lot of work, that's why I chose the sandblasting and powder coating route instead. The time that it takes plus the cost of the materias is what made me go that route, + I really think that it looks better and should last longer when powder coated.

Ty shaw351 i will pm you when things going still painting stuff live near salem ma
the scooter bearing are 2 small i found some 10mmx22mmx6mm pretty cheap if i go that way
quick top of the head math if i go with 3.25 top pulley and stock was 2.75 ruffly a 20% increase so if i was 1100 fan speed before i think it should be around 1320? ruffly
Also looks to me that its only going to be 1/4 inch taller so i need a belt 1/2 longer??
thanks

Your belt needs to be about 3/4" to 1" longer.

Math is good, 3.25 top pulley at 3600rpm and 9.00 bottom pulley should get you roughly 1300 rpm impeller speed. To get proper legnth I have an old long 1/2" belt cut in half that i put through the pulleys and mark, then i take off and measure.
As for your roller skids....... look in my garage photos here, I just used a sealed roller bearing on a modified ariens shoe. It worked out fine on my Franken Blower project, stopped the digging / grabbing on my uneven pavement. Rolls like a dream now.
