I am having trouble getting of bolt inside the pullys off. any Ideas? I cant seem to get a hold of the bolt
Technician: Vince O., Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
Is it the double pulley on the engine? Air tools would make it much easier as long as you can get to it

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes it is the double pulley on the engine, I cant seem to get the socket on it. How do you get the hex nut out
Technician: Vince O., Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
Sometimes the socket can be too wide,esp if a 1/2 inch drive. Are you able to get a 3/8 drive socket with extension on?
