Pulley Thorens  td 125 160 166 145    50 hz version


One of the easiest ways to improve the performance of your Thorens  TD 125 MKII 160, 165, 166, 145, 146, or 147 is to replace the worn, plastic drive pulley with our precision-machined, four-piece alloy pulley. True to the original Thorens design, our pulley includes the critical, spring-based clutch system. This clutch allows the pulley to slip momentarily at startup until the heavy platter reaches operating speed. This allows the motor to operate at full speed immediately, maximizing torque. More importantly, the clutch reduces startup stress on the motor and belt. Simpler, one-piece replacement pulleys eliminate the performance and safety benefits of the clutch system entirely. Our alloy design also utilizes a self-lubricating phosphorus bronze bushing in place of the original plastic.



This pulley is for use ONLY in the following 50 HZ Thorens models 

TD  125 160 165 166 145 146 147
