FRONT CRANK PULLEY

Sat Aug 14, 2004 6:35 am

I was hoping someone can tell me what size bolt holds the front pulleu on. All I see is the hand crank turn in there with what looks like a hex size bolt. Is this right and do I have to take the radiator out to get this pulley off. I have to change the seal behind it. It is leaking more and more everyday. Please explain how to take this off. I am new to these tractors. I appreciate all the help I can get.

The pulley is normally pressed on with no bolt holding it. Normally you can see threads that are used to pull the new one on. Yes you do have to remove the front casting, and you will need some type of bearing seperator to get hold of the ear of the pulley. If you try to pull on the flanges they will break. There are some tips on such as removing the pulley on Rudi's manual server http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/index.html
