Long time lurker. Finally created an account and have a question. Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this topic, but I’m wondering where the belt from the motor attaches to the dual pulleys above it (already has belt around both pulleys). I can’t find any manuals for my model number. This system has two pulleys on top with the motor pulley sitting in the lower cabinet. I’m stumped. Appreciate your help.

general.ca has the manual for your saw.

I’ve downloaded the manual but the schematics dont show the dual stage drivers from the trunnion to the motor. I’m only seeing one pulley in the manual.

Does the motor pulley go towards the blade? When I bought it used the pulley was there when you opened saw door with the belt hanging. None of the manuals show you the direction of the belt or pulleys.

I need a manual too. Their website does not have this manual. Can you possibly send a copy? Maybe this picture of my 50-220m1 will help your problem

That answers my question. I’m missing a pulley. Appreciate the picture. I will be calling GI tomorrow and will let you know about a manual. Any chance you know how the motor pulley attaches to the other?

You can see here the pulley for the motor belt is completely gone. Hopefully GI has these in stock.

This is the manual for the 50-200R. Correct me if I’m wrong but the motor pulley in this diagram shows it going towards the blade. Our setup has the pulley away from the blade as you can see in jcforester’s photo. Which leads me to believe this is the incorrect manual.

For the record the correct manual for 50-220 M1 does not include the schematic needed regarding the motor, pulley, or in my case, the arbor. I need to replace the pulley/bearing on the far end of the arbor. I suspect it is all one piece, arbor and pullies.

The only down fall of this saw is access to both the arbor and dual drive pulley. There is a flat part on the arbor itself to turn opposite of the pulley to take off. My saw is completely apart so it’s a little bit easier. If you take off the blade you can see it.

KMS Tools Service and Repair out of Canada can still get parts made for General International saws. They can also do a cross walk to see if any parts match new items or parts they have

I have contacted KMS and they are looking for the pulley 50220-98. Will get back to me but may be quite some time. They didn’t make any promises.

Did they find what you needed already?
