Greetings, My name isXXXXX and I am here to help the best I can. My goal is 100% satisfaction. Let's get started.
are you speaking of a half moon key or a square key?
Are you there?
sorry it took me so long i was getting more information
the model number is XXXXX
Its the middle pulley
Also would be helpful to know the exact model number
here is a collection manuals for current and older units so we can help each other.
I am not seeing that model. Does it have a model name?
Have you looked for any parts yet.. Many of these spindles have no parts and you just buy the whole spindle assembly..
But we need to identify yours..
the only Tool you can use is a wheel puller, and IF you use the wheel puller, you WILL destroy the pulley
You need to really SOAK the shaft down with PB Blaster for a few days
then you may be able to Drive the shaft out of the pulley.
How do I start to remove the pulley?
soak the shaft then wait 4 hours then soak again then wait, then soak again then wait overnight.
If it has a bolt in the top that holds the pulley on, then get a longer bolt with the same thread type and screw it in..
Then get a pry bar and apply gentle pressure and smack the Bolt in the center.. This should jar it loose.
I finally found the manual for us BOTH to look at http://www.jackssmallengines.com/pdf_documents/Yazookees_Manuals/Walk_behind_mowers/W36KI_W48KI_W48W.pdf
Lets race to figure out what we are seeing and who can solve it.
Are you talking about pulley number 43???
If so, it fits on a shaft that is Part of the mower deck
Then a spacer, and the bracket, then a nut.
Looks like after getting the bolt and the bracket off
and after sliding the spacer off
that you just PULL on the pulley..
But you will need to have soaked it down for a good many hours first..
gotta be careful because you do not want to break the weld loose that holds the shaft on.
Now that we have identified the problem, identified which pulley it is, have the parts break downs and everything, I will have to opt out because I have no idea what holds this pulley on unless there is a Screw or a Hex set screw in the side... So I will opt out..
Look sideways at the pulley and see if there is a hole that is protected my the belt in the side which would allow for screwing a set screw in. It may be filed with grass, so you would have to use a lot of compressed air to clean the pulley.
Like I said, if there is a better answer, I am opting out to allow another expert to respond..
