Hi Steve, There should be an allen head set screw (Sometimes 2) that has to be removed before the pulley will come free. One set screw should be directly above the key way "key" and the second one (If installed) will be within 90 degrees of the one securing the key. Also take a piece of 100 or 120 grit sand paper and sand off the rust areas on the old crank shaft. Occasionally it does require a puller to get them off but usually you can tap gently the pulley every 90 deg (not on the pulley V belt drive area) and it will come free.

This should be a 13HP 2 cyl engine.

Depending on the type pulley they are using. Some of them have a collar on the crankcase side of the pulley that will also have to be removed. (again secured with a set screw possibly 2)

If it is really stubborn you can and should use a puller to remove the pulley. Be very careful if you do have to use a puller; not to damage the V-belt drive area of the pulley.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to change blade boss on briggs &stratton sp 470

Unscrew the central bolt (9/16") - remove blade and any washers etc. It's a conventional right hand thread (anti-clockwise to remove), but may well be extremely tight. If necessary, grind the head of the bolt off and replace it.

The blade boss slides off the shaft - in theory. In practice, you will probably have to use a puller bearing on the blade bolt to pull it off. Remove the drive belt first!

Crankshaft pulley bolt keeps dropping out no matter how hard I reinstall it. Any idea? Countax A20-50 and its a Vanguard 20hp twin. Thanks!

Does that motor vibrate badly? The crankshaft may have gotten bent. If it vibrates VERY badly, it may be nearly impossible to keep that bolt tightened. Your best bet may be to try some (REMOVABLE) Loctite (like Loctite Blue 242) on the bolt threads. It's expensive, but it's well suited for situations just like this.

How do i remove a faulty magnet clutch on a John Deere LX277 Tractor

Hi, there is a single bolt in the middle of the clutch. Once undone, the clutch assembly should slide off the crankshaft. If not, it is seized on the shaft and will require the use of a puller. Try soaking the shaft in crc or inox first. Regards Phil.

On the end of the shaft that comes from the motor there should be a bolt that holds the pulley in place. You will need to remove the bolt in order to get the pulley off. If you can lift the front end onto a couple of blocks it will make the job easier to do. You may have to place a screw drive in between the belt and the pulley. A wood wedge the width of the belt would be better as it would be less likely to damage the pulley. Depending on how old the tractor is, you may have to spray the bolt with a penetrating oil first to help loosen the bolt.
