English term or phrase: Rub
I don't seem to find a proper translation for "rub" as a noun in the following context:

"The takeup pulley rubs opposite the drive motor are mounted in a horizontal position, better coverage would be achieved if they are rotated 90° to the vertical position."

Hope someone can help me :)

Es el sentido que le encuentro a la expresión: "The takeup pulley rubs..."
Aquí *rub* es verbo y no un nombre.

neutral  lorenab23: the verb here is "are" the take pully-rubs, opposite the driver motor, ARE mounted...

  -> Muchas gracias, lorena23. Tu aporte me hace ver que si la concordancia es con el verbo *are*, entonces *rubs* sería un sustantivo (en plural). Pero no encuentro *rub* como sustantivo en ninguna parte.
