Hello, is the pulley you are doing the one on the left side of the pic below?
I need you to send me an email adress so I can use a method real simple to send you a picturs I took, one question only , which way do I turn the bolt to loosen it.
forget the email, your picture is good. yes it is the belt tensioner pulley in your picture which is turning counter clockwise, while all the other pulleys turn clockwise. one question is which way do I turn the bolt to lossen this pulley?
The pulley is a regular right hand thread. The bolt only tightens down a small bearing and the pulley free spins on it. Rotation does not come into play. You are 100% to turn the bolt counter clockwise to loosen
