Pulled The Engine In The 124 Today...
Posted September 10, 2012 - 07:02 PM
I proceeded with evicting the mice. To take off the flywheel cover off, the screen has to come off. And, to do that the little pulley has to come off. I did not know how to take off the pulley and I broke it. I stopped, and before doing more damage I wanted too make sure there were mice before I took it off completely. I took off a side cover to where I could see in it and it was empty! So now to put it back together.
I did not want to put it back together with the broken pulley, even though it would not effect anything. Trying to figure out how to get it off I bent the flywheel screen. Since it was bent I figured I would bend it more out of the way to figure it out. I saw how to get it off. Then, I tapped a screwdriver between the pulley and the flywheel. After rotating and putting the screwdriver in a few spots I got it off. But, now I need another pulley and another screen!
I went to the shed to take one off another engine. But, since I had to bend the screen to get the other off I don't know how to get this one off without bending the screen or breaking the pulley. I could put a puller on it but that is how I broke the other. Any suggestions?
It is causing a lot of head aches to evict the mice that never moved in!

Yes, that pulley. It is supposed to slide onto and off of the shaft. But that is not the case.

Here is how I got it off.
I got it all back together again!
When putting it back together, I broke the choke cable. And while taking it apart the wire broke off of the condenser. So it will need those things replaced.

I went and put the belly weights back on. I don't know the exact weight of them. I will weigh on of them.
First, one piece bolts to the factory mower deck brackets.
I has two "wings" that go on the sides. The one with the long piece of square tubing goes on first. The tube slides into the other square tube on the front of the main piece on the deck brackets.
The long tube sticks out of the other side and the other wing then slides onto that. Then a screw is put into the front corner to prevent the wings from sliding outward.

Kenny, they actually don't stick out! Each side is about 2 inches inward from the outside of the tires.
