Frozen adjuster 3 belt blower

Recommended Posts


The adjuster on the post & stud assy for the rotor drive on my 3 belt blower is frozen. Took it off, put in vise, & torched it with oxy/acetylene. Got it to move some by pounding it together with a hammer. Ran nut down & tightened & heated. Only got it to move so an inch of keyway is showing & won't budge anymore, even with heat.

How much travel does it have, or am I at the end of it? Seems to be a pain to free up. Thanks.
