Pulley is held on with bolt and washer, and is a tight fit. It is NOT screwed on.

No bolts visable the grass cutter is of but there is a pulley remaining about 4inches round i cant remove it to remove the moter
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 10 months ago

It has to be held in place. If no bolt in the center of the shaft, there has to be a set screw in the side of it. Look for a hole where an allen head set screw will be.

On screws or bolts it must be a press fit or threaded on but i cant se a key way either
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 10 months ago

Pulleys are never screwed on. Clean the sides of the pulley, and look for a hole in side of shaft, for allen head set screw!
