I'm looking for a place to get a couple of idler/drag wheels like the one below. It's for a Futura/Specialty Auto (who of course has been out of business for a while), and am hoping maybe these wheels are kinda of standard for some autos? The inside part of the wheel is the part I need .. it's 5.5" diameter and 1.75" thick, with a 2.5" cutout in the middle. It also needs a divider in the cutout (you put 2 bearings in the wheel that are kept apart be the divider). Anyone with one of the other types of automatics know if this might be the same setup as yours? If not, does anyone know who might be able to fabricate this type of wheel? Thanks!

Tri Valley Equipment can probably help as they sold a ton of those machines and still has some of the parts made.

A local machine shop here has made me door bearings out of similar material. If you take it to your local machine shop I am sure they could make one.

Yeah, Tri-Valley was going to be my first call if there wasn't a readily available 'standard' one from Kleen-rite or somewhere. And yes, Kramerwv, I've got a Futura Revolution and an Impulse in operation.
