I found a really nice king-seeley wood lathe built for crafstman dated
back in the late 40's and fifty's.
my problem is, I need a new v-belt. I downloaded the manuel for the
103.23070 and it told how to change a belt. I have taken the 2 hex
nuts off, taken the 2 set screws from the pulley, and have driven the
spindel most of the way out using a wood dowel and wooden mallet. now
I only like about 3/4 " having it driven out enought to get the new
belt on, but the pulley seems stuck now. I have sprayed wd40 on the
shaft and in the set screw holes of the pulley still wont budge. I'm
just going to let it soak in wd40 for a few days. If anyone has had
experience getting a v-belt puller (4 step pulley) off of a shaft I
would sure like some suggestions.
Link to a parts pitchure if there is one could be useful to see what
you're really got.
Try a) would be drive it back where it was and clean up the shaft a
little, re-lube and try again.
b) would be the pulley puller; that assumes there's room and there's
almost always a way to rig it up if think about it enough.
c) would be forget the continuous belt and go w/ a link belt. In
general I think they're a solution looking for a problem but here might
be one--and easy out, so to speak.
a) agreed,,, cleaning even to the point of a dremel tool wire brush to
clean the shaft
b) after a)
c) wouldn't have occurred to me.
d (which would probably be my first course of action)) considering the way
the belt is moved for speed change, is it really necessary to remove the
pulley? Can't you just get it on one side and then work it onto the other?
Well, that would have been my first suggestion as well if OP hadn't said
he downloaded the manual and (I assumed) was thus following its
instructions....which is why I mentioned the "pitchure would potentially
I was/am presuming there's a problem in clearance somewhere or the
instructions would indicate that one could replace the belt w/o disassembly.
