Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
I am replacing a 14.5 HP Briggs & Stratton engine with a 17 HP on a Snapper Z- Rider Yard Cruiser. I cannot get the pulley from the main shaft which is all that remains to remove the engine. I have tried using a 3 point wheel puller only to damage the pulley. even after bracing the pull points I got the same results. What am I doing wrong?
Some pulley have grub screws on side as well as main bolt on bottom .sometimes heat is needed on pulley to make it expand

Take a wet shop towel,, and put it around the shaft,, at point where it comes out of motor,, so seal will not heat up and get runed,, put puller back on weel,, take oxi ace,, torch ,, medium heat,, and heat one side of weel,, and put tension,, on puller,, heat,, tension,, heat,, tension,, until weel moves,, make sure,, allen is loose,, weel should come off !!! little prayer,, won,t hurt,, !! common problem,, !! you are heating the aeria which is on the shaft,, keep shop towel wet,, so crank seal will not de grade,, good luck ,,, ****,,
