That may be a pot metal or aluminum pulley. Machined pulleys from steel won t break like that. Cost a bit more, but worth it. No need to get Geetech replacement pulleys.

I’ll hold off on getting direct replacement of a Geetec Taiwan pulley. The ones at Rainbow Precisions (link above) were cast iron, I believe. Made in USA :) I’ll try Grant’s idea of Tractor Supply if they are not made in China. Luckily, this seems to be a standard pulley. 3/4” bore, keyway, double groove. Don’t understand the pitch measurement though.
