    I Really Didn't see this Post, missed it.

Is That Correct???"" ?? didn't know this oopps
    I have a stock Opel Double pulley I can probably use with it. I guess this what needed to Run A/C Compressor, or PS Pump,etc.
    I don’t know if it will work with other double groove pulleys, but yes it is designed to line up with the new aluminum double groove pulley’s outer groove as it has a spacer built in to run your alternator belt on the outer groove.

    I hope so, that the Stock Double pulley aligns up with the new water pump pulley
    Funny thing is that in Post#41
    First Opel1981 :: states that he has 18 orders crankshaft and 23 Orders Water Pump pulleys,,
    Oh well,, I'll make mine work some how..

    I don't know why its funny, is it because more orders for the waterpump pulley? The reason would be that many people bought the double groove pulley in the last group buy, and this is the first time that the waterpump pulley has been available for purchase, so those that already have the double groove pulley...now want the pump pulley.
    I had these made for a reason, because I was machining spacers in house for the stamped steel pulleys, only to find that most all of the originals have a bend to them or wobble. It solved a lot of problems just having these made. I now on a stock 2.2 double groove pulley the new pump pulley will line up with it, but I do not know if an old ARA crank pulley will line up

    Got it. Thanks.

    I'll reply soon as I'm still recovering from my computer issues.

    The good news is I was able to recover the spreadsheet with everyone's address and that they paid so there's no problems there.

    What's really weird is I was able to retrieve files I never had. There were a lot of Excel files that I didn't make. It's possible they come with MS Office as templates or part of the "learning experience".

    I still haven't gotten my laptop back to where I need it. It's basic OS right now. This weekend I plan on reinstalling the expensive software and such after I build a home cloud.

    As it is I was able to use this setback to get a few upgrades. My laptop now has 1.5TB of SSD and my 3TB backup drive (that will eventually be my cloud) is severed from the 9th circle of hell it's been in for the last 3 years.

    I'm also setting up my other two desktops as specialty puters.

    AND... I finally set up my SATO label printer to run from two different desktops with both set as shared units so I can print to it from my laptop.

    It's been a crazy couple of months for my electrical stuff. I've had to replace my all of my garage LED lights, cell phone, two monitors, redo my laptop software, and last Sunday my vacuum sealer quit. I'm ready for a break from electricity.

    Jeff, if you want to come up here and pack and ship each individual one, I’m game! Just too much for me to deal with right now. That’s why I was only willing to coordinate having them machined.

    I thought the same thing. We've all already sent payment in for these, so I'm surprised you haven't received any payment yet. Oh well, I guess it is what it is...

    The way we set it up is different than last time. I busted my hump to take all the orders, keep track of them, who paid, who didn’t, then I shipped them out to 30 different places. I don’t care to have them made, as I had to order some inventory anyways, but I’m not interested in shipping and book keeping for another group buy, I don’t have time for that. FirstOpel1981 had volunteered his efforts on doing that part to make it possible. I haven’t received payment yet because we wanted to make sure I got them all so we can do one payment to me, minus your shipping cost. I don’t think it will be a long wait, so please be patient. We are doing this volunteer

    To clarify what Keith just said in different words.

    "I" organized the group buy. Keith is the agent that I am using to get the production made.
    Keith has, generously, kept in touch with the progress of the order and informed all of the buyers that he's shipping the pulleys to me to distribute.
    His comment that he's waiting for the money (I will Paypal it tomorrow) he will release the pulleys to me for distribution.

    Keith isn't wrong about the "work" that goes into the distribution. If not for the fact that it's been part of my career to do shipping, then it would be a small nightmare to handle the distribution. For me it will be a piece of cake compared to the work I have to do with just one of my customers. To comment a little on that one, they present a 25 page set of instructions related to their shipping requirements and "fine" the suppliers if there's a missing "I" dot or a "T" cross. This year, so far, I've completed 117 shipments for them with no infractions.

    Anywhoo.... Everything is proceeding according to the original plan.
