Pulley reomval from snow blower

Recommended Posts

I have a 42" blower for a 7100 series tractor that came with a front PTO hitch. I've since replaced that hitch with a mid-PTO and I've noticed the drive pulley on the blower is mounted with the collar facing left with the front-mount hitch and it needs to be reversed for the mid-PTO hitch. This is to position the drive pully slightly left of center for the mid-PTO drive. My pulley is frozen on there. I have the set screw out and I can see the key is centered but I'm stuck. There really isn't a lot of room to hit it with a mallet or block of wood either has the blower housing doesn't give me much room. Any suggestions for getting it off? Would heating the pulley help? Thanks!

Thanks guys - got it. Took some penetrating oil, heat and force (beat it loose with a 3 lb hammer - carefully if there is such a thing with a 3 lb hammer). Cleaned it up, put it on backwards, with the collar facing out and it got me aligned where I need to be. I also had to bend the belt keeper but from what I can tell, those are the only differences in a front PTO and mid-PTO mount. I should be ready well before the first flakes hit the ground. Now, I've got to see if my chains and wheel weights fit.
