Abstract

A combination pulley and bearing with integral mounting assembly having general utility is disclosed. The assembly is comprised of a molded plastic pulley and bearing outer race member 1 that accommodates a drive cable or belt 2, and an inner race and axle member 3 as shown in Figures 1A and 1B. Integration of multiple functions into the same part reduces the cost of manufacture and minimizes the time and tools required for installation or field replacement.
