Hi Mark, these have been reproduced.

The one pictured would have been painted black for 1952 (as would have been the upper pulley). Both nuts cad-plated.

This fellow has been selling a nice cast steel repro for 4-5 years - - - -

James can probably tell you if the pulleys on your car were originally painted black, or electroplated finished - - -

Ha!

We are on the same page Don.

Yeah, Porsche started cad-plating the upper and lower pulleys sometime between mid-April and mid-May 1953. Before that, black paint.

Btw, has anyone ever seen a version of this pulley without the reverse threading on the outer part acting as oil slinger back into the case? I have an NOS one like this. No threading, Porsche part. Not sure how it would be used on a 2-piece case engine. Perhaps with a seal of some sort?

James; I think that pulley is for an early 3-piece case industrial engine.

Interesting Vic. I thought those industrial engine pulleys had a bit larger diameter and a 546.xx.xxx part number. Mine has a tag attached with part number 356.02.102.1. It has the normal 170.5mm diameter used on all the 2-piece case engines except for the 1100. Odd.
