Default Removing rusty engine pulley?

Hello All,

I am in need of some advice for the future. I have a rusted on engine pulley that will not for the life of me come off. I have tried using a pulley puller, heating up the pulley, and finally bought some penetrating oil and revisited the pulley puller. I am going to pull the motor next and get some better access to the top of it for the penetrating oil and leverage as well. My question is... Is there an easier way to get these suckers off? By the way I own a series 1000 with a 18 hr briggs. Thanks for any help.

I guess if it were me I would use a little heat along with a 3 jaw puller. It will most likely trash the seal behind it but installing a new seal is not a huge deal. Sometime you can tighten up the puller and hit the screw of the puller with a brass hammer and it will be enough to break it free.

One of the dumbest/most painful things I ever did was to heat a pulley up to nearly cherry red before it finally loosened it's grip and came off. (I needed to swap pulleys on an alternator). By this time I was frustrated and running late, got in a hurry and picked up the still scorching hot pulley with my bare hand. It hissed and burned my fingerprints off! OUCH!

If your talking about the small pulley under the eng that rund the drive belt. What I do in the shop is pull the elec pto. If the small pulley wont come off then pull the 4 bolts on the eng and lift it up slide it the eng back and forth to get the belt on then mount it around the tranny. run the 4 bolts in then put it around the idlers.

Hope it helps.

Funny you mention that Vince_o cause that is exactly what I did. I actually had to unbolt the exhaust as well. After I figured out what to do, it only took maybe an hour to get the new belt on and tighten everything back up.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
