That's the wrong pulley for your engine. If you use this one, it will slow your cooling fan since it is smaller.
If you need a pulley, search the classifieds here on the Samba.

From reading the ad link, it looks to be a regular sized pulley Confused

What Bruce is describing is a power pulley. much smaller in diameter.

I believe the stock sized pulley ( http://vwparts.aircooled.net/Stock-Crankshaft-Pulley-1200-1600cc-113-105-251G-p/113-105-251g.htm ) will work just fine for the OPs needs

I ordered one. We will have to see how it compares when it arrives. It has to be better than this dented one I have now.

No, the new one John sells is a 40hp-1600 size pulley. They are smaller in diameter than a 25-36hp pulley.
Using a 1600 size pulley slows the cooling fan making the engine run hotter. = bad idea.

Just think of it as a winter pulley. You're going to also have to play around with different sized fan belts to find one that fits. Keep looking for the correct pulley and you should be able to get set up properly before summer comes.

I emailed them about canceling my order if the pulley size didn't match mine.

A 36hp is NOT a 1200. You said your pulley is bent;straighten it.

It is correct for a 61-65 40-hp, 1200cc engine.

The 36hp engine is exactly 1192ccs, or in advertising, 1200.

There are 2, 1200 cc motors. Both have a 77 mm bore. Both have a 64 mm stroke. Both are air cooled. That is pretty much all they have in common.

I understand that Bruce,but every advertiser calls the 36 horse a 36 horse and the 40 horse a 1200.

I see that you already cancelled, but that pulley would have worked just fine.

The size difference is minimal. 36 hp engines run cold anyways.

I've been running a 1600cc pulley on my 36hp for a couple of years now. I had to switch due to running a machined in sand seal. My 36hp also runs higher compression, ported/polished heads, and larger valves, etc. Engine still runs cold, and even did when I was running my speedwell blower.

A good used 36hp pulley is great too, but you would have been fine.

Original belt works with 1600cc pulley as well...you just need to adjust slightly with generator pulley washers(as designed).
