    Thanks for the info. I have thought about 16" wheels, but then I have to get wheels and tires. I actually like the look of the 14" "balloon" tires....

    That pulley looks even worse than the first video. I'm sure Radioman is correct about the other damage to the related parts. Tough decision, take...
