Hi Glyn the Systemdek 3 was the last version of the original Systemdek with the notorius nextel coated plinth.
It used the standard Philips Airpax motor as fitted to many decks including the Linn Lp12 Logic DM101 etc. common enough to buy on Ebay.
I have had three Systemdeks and still have two in pieces in the loft. The pulley is a two step fixed to the motor shaft with a grub screw. I doubt you will find one of the correct size short of having one made.
These are great decks when restored and running properly and i hope you can sort yours.
Regards Jim

The inner platters on Systemdek's may be a common size across the range. There is an I920 motor/pulley on ebay at the moment.

After checking it looks like the I920 uses a round belt so that one wont work.
