Garage door cable drum identify to replace?

Looking for help on my overehead garage door's cable retractor/drum identity?

Its bearing is shot and it sitting ****-eyed, damaged cable.

Without removing, it still functions, door goes up and down but jerks a lot, cant find any part nbr on it.

Doors were installed about ten years ago.

Anybody have any clues for me on this or what I can replace it with?

Yes, I will do both sides and new cables.

Pics attached

Tks

Pete

****-eyed roller / drum

Cable spring drum setup

Normally the cable comes back from the spring and is attached to the track as shown in yellow.
You have reels (red) shown in the second picture that are used to easily adjust the tension on the springs.
I have never seen them before but they are just tension adjustment spools.... doubtful they'd ever go bad.

You are looking for replacement pulleys... by the brown arrow.... correct ?

PJmax,

Tks for the reply.
I cant seem to find these anywhere on the internet either.
Not the pulley bearing that is shot. The shaft that comes out of the tensioner/drum is very crooked. points down and back towards spring. So the bearing inside that plastic housing OR the seat where the inner end of the shaft bearing sits is shot.
Tomorrow I will try to contact the company that supplied the building materials for my garage.

Those are Clopay ez set extension spring doors sold at a lumber yard. see example here Put the door up take the cable off the pulley and try to tighten the nut with a 9/16 socket in an impact. I also notice your top sections aren't braced and openers look to be mounted too high above the door... should be about 12-13 inches

Ok.... I misunderstood.
That black item is just a tensioner. It doesn't turn as the door moves.
That shaft is strictly for adjusting the cable tension.

That shaft turns a reel inside the housing.
