Don't Mix and Mismatch Your Pulleys and Bushings

All Gates pulleys and corresponding bushings use mounting screws with imperial threads. Even bushings with metric bores use imperial threads so they can still work with our pulleys. Buying bushings with metric bores from other suppliers may not work with Gates pulleys because they could have metric threads. To avoid this issue always source parts from your local Gates distributor.
