Customer Question

I have a pulley (right side) that I am trying to remove to replace my belt on a John Deere D110 and it doesn't seem to come off. Does the bracket it is attached to need to be removed, or is it just difficult to get off?

Item 3 in the picture are the nuts that hold the idlers on if we are looking at the same picture but in either case you can remove the center nut to remove the pulley from the shaft.

I've done that. The idler just doesn't want to come off
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for the info... so the nut is off and the idler will not slide off the shaft? will it spin or is it seized? have you loosened the tension of the belt? Pulley # ***** will let you release tension. Bracket 12 can be moved to release the tension. Try removing the springs with vice grips and if removing the spring tension does not give you enough slack, remove bracket 12 as an assembly.
