Tight and Loose Pulleys

Each shaft is fitted with a matching pair of tight and loose pulleys and a third fixed pulley. The tight and loose pulleys are 2" wide and the dished spoke fixed pulley is 2 1/4" wide. All pulleys are 12" in diameter. The tight pulleys have a set screw on either side of the hub and the loose pulleys have an oil hole on one side. The 7/8" shafts aren't original and have a good bit of pitting. However, the loose pulleys turn freely with no play and none of the fixed pulleys are frozen.
