Well, after a Jurassic excursion yesterday, finally all three pulleys are removed :dancingbanana: . The center one had an extra set screw that was NOT shown in the diagram :wallbanging: . Air Impact was able to remove it once I bought the correct puller. Not too much damage to the shaft. I'll now need to purchase a tap and die set to re-tap the pulleys for new set screws. Moving back to sanding the deck today.

Well, you got it off! Just use anti-seize when going back together!

The trip looks like fun. Next time I come down to Texas, will you take me too? :D

Good news on the last pulley. Whew, has to be a relief.

I found my tap, so all the pulleys are re-taped. I completed the first sanding top and bottom and applied one more tube of JB. I'll sand this again, then wet sand with 320 and 400 on top, wash and rince with simple green and it will be ready for paint, but before I paint I need to find a safe storage location.

I found a temporary storage location so I spent the day (yes I played hooky today) sanding and painting. This took 6 cans of white, which gave 4-5 coats top and bottom. I touched up the new top cover. I was planning to paint it white as the original, but I think I like the white/Black contrast. Pulleys were used to lift it up there, and a cargo strap to secure it, till I get the rest of the hardware ready to install.

I agree, I did the same thing.

Well, I took the mandrills to a bearing shop today.

Good News, they can get the bearings

Bad News, they need the part number off the races, and they won't dissemble due to the age.

Looks like I'll be taking these apart.

Taking the bearings and races out are much easier than getting the pulleys off. Having the correct pullers, vice, and an air impact reduces the need for a BFH!  :thumbs: One down, two to go then back to the bearing shop.

I spoke too soon..... :wallbanging:  I have so much pressure on this one it is warping, and yes I used the BFH to see if I could jar it loose. I think there is too much metal to heat, but If I do try the heat it will have to be outside, as this is full of grease and PB.

Spray it again and leave that pressure on it overnight. The "garage fairies" may just work their magic.

I agree. Keep the pressure on and keep spraying. It may take a few days. Then maybe a little heat. BFHs just break things that can't be fixed.

On Mine, I ended up doing what you're doing. Then releasing the pressure and driving it ON a smack or two. Kept that back and forth for a few times over a day or two. 2/3 of them came off that way (they all were really stuck on) the third, I had to grind the outter off, get the balls out of the way, then cut as much as I could a line across the inner . Even with heat and the weakened area, it was a bugger.

As for the bearings, If the shop isnt inclined to be helpful... might I suggest looking for another place to find your bearings?

On the applied heat, what are your thoughts on this.

1. Leave the pressure on all night, and day tomorrow.

2. tomorrow evening, release the pressure, try a couple love taps, and re-apply pressure.

3. Place whole assembly on gas grill and heat to 400+ for a couple hours while pressure is on.

Baste occasionally

Mix up some Acetone & ATF. That will work down in there maybe!
