I'm taking my 54" MF 1855 deck apart and I was wondering how to get the pulleys off the spindle shafts.  I didn't see anything in the manual and I figured I'd consult the experts here so I don't damage any parts that are no longer available.  Thanks!

Take out the bolt and it sledes right off. You might might to loosen the mandrels and back off the tensioners,to give the belts some slack.

I loosened the bolts, but didn't try to pull them off quite yet.  I have them soaking with penetrating oil now because there was a good amount of rust under the covers so I'll see what happens tomorrow.  Thanks!

The shafts are steel but the hub in the pulley a plastic material like the belt surface. Sometimes you may have to use a puller with light pressure.

I was able to put a longer bolt into the spindle shafts and tap each one out.  I got all 3 out successfully.  Thank you!
