Ok, so FINALLY got the stock pulley off but now have run into yet another problem. The pully was extremely hard to get off and once it did come off I noticed that about the first half inch of threads in the blower shaft are stripped and the small bolt that threads into the shaft is now stuck in the large welded pulley removal bolt. I don't have a vice, but I'm sure if I can get to one I'll be able to remove the small bolt and replace it with a new one. As for the threads that are stripped, does anyone have any suggestions? I think if I could hold the blower shaft still I could thread the bolt in until it reached the good threads and threaded the rest of the way, but I can't figure out a way to hold the blower shaft tight enough to accomplish this. Is there any other way to install the replacement pulley with using the tool? Not having a happy experience so far with this "simple" project. If anyone is in the Tampa Bay area and thinks they could help out maybe Monday sometime, let me know as I'd be willing to pay for your services.
