WHAT A RIP OFF!!!
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
I am back with you. I do apologize for the delay. I had to step away from my computer. I can continue to help you. There are not any additional charges.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
You do not have to remove your steering wheel. Just remove the snap ring and the gear, at the end of your steering shaft. Lift your steering shaft up enough for your belt to clear. If you have not already removed your deck, it will be good to do so. This will give you easier access to replacing your belt.

I do not mind working with you, until we get your belt installed. Thanks! We can continue from here.
