interesting way of doing it:clapper:Thanks for passing it on:bow:I changed out my belts and I found a great way of holding the pullies in place so they don't move off their marks, I tooktwo 19 mm sockets andthey fit the holes in the pullies nicely I then took a small set ofwelders clamps and clamped it down to the back of the casing and to the center of the socket, be sure to use a small peice of vinyl siding to protectthe casingor apeice of 1/4plywood works. Don't put those clamps on the pulley itself, if you do you might have a wobbly pulley, the socket just keeps it from moving.before you clamp it down put your new belt in the clamps and just cut out the old one with something sharplike tin snips...place in the new..be sure to remove the sockets from the pullies when your done...Worked for me..
