Are you predicting heavy snow in OK this winter? Or does this mean we won't get much?

Travis Meyer says to expect 8" to 12" this year. I'm not going to get snowed in this year.

But we may only get 1/2" at a time!

I have been trying to put one on a CC169 but it is winning. Latest problem is that the belt pulley going to the gearbox is off by about an inch. I just can not get it to move in or out. I have used PB Blaster, heat, hammer and all the cuss words I learned in the Army and nothing helped. I soaked it down with PB Blaster again this afternoon and as much as I hate to I'll pull the blower off tomorrow and see it I can bust the cast iron pulley with a three jawed puller.

Mine is all the way out on the shaft. I had to cut the old one off.

Wow great idea. This one is also all the way out and I may be able to just cut the shaft off as close to the pulley as possible. That way I cold use the press to push out the stub left in the pulley and then remount it on the shaft.

Thanks,
Bill

I meant I had to cut the pulley off, not the shaft.

If I do that I'll have to buy the pulley, the other way I don't have to spend any more money on the tractor and blower. I'll try the puller first though.

Doesn't make any difference though as soon as I get this issue fixed something else will go wrong. The head lights did work, replaced the tail lights and the head lights quit.

Six of one, half dozen of another.

Thanks,

The pulley is $65. I had to replace mine it was the wrong one.
