Logan 9B17-61, Need a Motor Pulley

I have a Logan 9B17-61 Lathe that was sold thru Wards. The lathe was brand new with surface rust and storage coating. The v-belt was still wrapped. However the lathe came without a motor or the motor pulley. The -61 version is a bench top model. I have a 1/2hp GE motor w 5/8" diameter shaft. I did purchase the manual from Logan Actuator.
I contacted Logan Actuator to purchase a pulley, but I was told it is obsolete and no longer available.
Does anyone have a pulley or the dimensions so that I can continue the restoration project?
I would also be interested in a gear box or set of gears for thread cutting also.

I saw this in the manual or parts list that I have from Logan. I think the dimensions may refer to the inner / outer dimensions for one of the V-belt grooves. The second groove should be a larger diameter. I was hoping that someone with a Logan 9B17 might be able to measure their pulley and maybe send a picture. if someone had a pulley for sale that would be helpful as well.

My gut feeling is that the 2-3/8" / 2-7/8" are the outside diameters of the two motor pulley speed steps. Try measuring your countershaft pulleys and compare them with the specified 6" / 6-3/8" that Logan listed for them. If the actual diameters match up with the listed ones I would suspect the motor pulley would also.

For what it's worth, I have a Logan 820, it's motor pulley is documented as 2-3/8" / 4" I measure mine as 2-3/8" / 4-1/8" outside diameters (a 1/8" discrepancy) The countershaft pulley measurements on my 820 are exactly as documented 8-5/8" / 10"


Yes please post pictures!
