Step 13: Attaching the Speed Reduction Pulley

Picture of Attaching the Speed Reduction Pulley

Washing machine motors are designed to run at high speeds (more on that later), so we need to use the large pulley that fit on the spider shaft. The pulley is dished and would snag on the undercarriage if used as designed, so we need to mount the other way round. Being aluminium it is easy enough to cut or file the rectangular keyway all the way through so this is possible.
