Well, I stopped by the hardware store and got a pully, longer stainless screw, and 2 stainless washers.
There were steel pulleys and nylon pulleys. The steel ones looked great but, of course, were much heavier, I got a nylon one.
I figured if the bushing gets mucked up that the cable will still slide on the nylon.
The pully has a bushing that it rotates around so tightening the screw does not affect things.
The hole in the pulley is larger than the screw but when I tightened it, it seems to be snug.
I used a washer on the outside but decided not to use one on the inside.
The pulley was $3.60, screw $1.10, and the washer $0.37. The Problem Solvers pulley costs $10.
The pulley is wider than the Problem Solvers and that might be a problem with the cable coming off.
I won't be done with the build for another couple of weeks so I can't tell you if it works at this point but my gut says that it will work perfectly.
I'm building a Gravity Zilla monstercross. So far, it's lookin' good.
