Correct flywheel for a3Z492?

by Chuck
(Dallas, TX)

I have ordered a flywheel for this unit. I have been sent 3 flywheels, from 2 vendors. Two of the flywheels are the correct 16" diameter V5 belt, but the shaft fitments are for the new tapered shafts, rather then the old straight shaft. Any ideas or location of correct flywheel would be appreciated. 3Ph 220V 5HP motor shaft measures 1.12" diameter.

It appears you need to get a taper bushing to go with your sheave. You have a keyed shaft?

Take a look at the Leeson sheave catalog, and the 1.12 is 1 1/8 SAE, most likely.
