Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i know its very simple, but i cant remember taking it off, ive done this before!!
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 2 years ago

The bolt should back out counter clockwise , if it's spinning freely there may be a nut behind it. I'm looking for a parts diagram

After removing the screw and washer from the center of the pulley the nut goes clockwise to loosen and counter clockwise to tighten

Won't budge!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what screw r u referring to??
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 2 years ago

Look in the center hole of the pulley , does yours have a screw and washer in the center hole of the pulley ? If so that needs to come out first , I attached a file did you see it ?

Just FYI, the large nut doesn't turn it lifts up.
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 2 years ago

Was there a screw and washer in the center of it ? , to get a refund you can manually close the question and contact customer service , we only handle answering questions etc
