"Taking the belt off with a hammer is not the preferred method." :rolleyes:

Can't see why anyone needs a hammer at all.

With the bolt/washer/belt removed. the pulley pulls right off.

Was it 'Rusted' in place, just give it a healthy soaking in PB Blaster and wait.

He probably didn't use the proper belt hammer, and tried to get by with a regular hammer. Common rookie mistake.

He was using a left handed hammer with his right hand and missed the thing a ma bob he was aiming at and instead hit the thing a ma gig and broke it. That his story and he is a professional mechanic so the you might not understand the terminology.馃槀

Well, in his defense, it does look like it did actually, come off!

John. it would be nice to read the actual thread, from where you harvested these pictures.

As Paul Harvey would say "Now for the rest of the story"

There is no visible rust on the cam shaft, Or center hole in sprocket.
To cause it to be frozen in place. (I blew up the pic)

All pulleys slide right off once the retaining bolt is removed.
with a slight nudge from the rear of the belt sprocket.

Then again. Some people can't add air in their tires without great difficulty.

Most of these pictures have been harvested from Facebook, and "the rest of the story" is very rarely available.

Now there is a place that isn't on my bucket list to go too!

And yes I Agree- the Internet is the place to post just about anything unverifiable. and someone will inevitably believe it (LOL)

Thanks for the "rest of the story" (y)

Facebook is a place where the minority rules the social class.

I received a very nasty comment yesterday in a 'group',
a comment where I joked that a user's problem was because they were using a 'Macintosh' computer and should put Linux on it... followed that up with an Emoticon showing plainly that it was a joke...

some jerk complained that I was being 'off topic and stop trashing their group'

My answer was to Disassociate from the group, I won't be bothered with providing an answer to their problem with LibreOffice anymore....

the hell of it was, in that same post, I provided an answer with a video showing the original poster how to fix a problem he had.....

no more of that claptrap, he lost a helper, as did the group.

Too many thin skinned, butt hurt types around anymore. Too many get offended by literally nothing.
