Too worn PSD pulley?
« on: April 22, 2014, 06:29:08 pm »
Took it off the other day and i thought it looks like its a little worn. Has done about 30k and always correct belts used.

Any opinions?

Rubber beats steel? Rock beats scissors?

I think your belt has been too tight - mine have half that mileage but totally unmarked. The anodising is a little shinier where the belt runs. Mine are tensioned like a cambelt i.e. able to get 90 degree twist on the longest run.

I have run the same though for belt tightness.

If your are the anodised ones they wont wear as quick as these ones.

Yeah maybe its time to get steel ones. Or just wait for an anodised set to pop up, but that could be a while.

Wow thats some bad wear!
I used to own phase 1 PSD toothies which had he guides and they seemed fine.

Just bought the kit from MaxRPM and will be fitting once rebuilt my charger so will let you know how they are.
