Bandsaw pulleys

>Hello,

Does anyone know what size pulleys are supposed to be on a 14" bandsaw?

I have an older model Rockwell model 14, I have been cutting blanks with it lately and it seems a little slow.

It also seems to stall very easily aven though it has an older 1 hp motor.

I am using 1/2" 4 hook tpi. Does that sound like the right blade for cutting blanks round after they are slabbed?

Thanks for any input,
Steve
