I know for a fact that there are many of you out there that have put brass pulleys on either a repaint or the basic model of the CC8800. I'm doing my own repaint and after tearing it all down and getting a closer look at the poor example of the pulleys that are put on this model I would like to improve on them.
My question is this, I have no way of measuring all the different pulleys and the amount of each one i will need to make this happen, did i mention that I also need the jib sizes and the total pulleys I will need for I am putting that on the repaint as well.
Now if i need to count all pulleys and come back with help i can do so but I'm hoping one of you has the answer right off. Any help would be most appreciated and when it is done I would like to share it with all of you.

I will let you know later when I can get to my computer as I have all the information as I use to make brass pulley kits for this model and many others, but my pulley manufacture stopped trading so I am no longer able to supply!

As far as I can remember all the sheeves (pulleys) are 17mm dia and you will need about 170, am sure once Tim gets back to you he will have all the info you need.
