Hi there just pick up this parts blower was wondering if any of you guys had experience removing the 10 inch pulley from the impeller shaft? I think the pulley is installed the wrong way? Hub should be face out away from snow blower housing.  thanks mustagman

Soak it with a penetrating oil and take your time. That could be months. I would look at using small wooden wedges under the pulley to push it up gently. The more evenly spaced wedges, the less likely to warp the pulley. A bit of heat to the hub will help but may damage what is underneath. Sometimes a tap with a mallet will free it. Good Luck, Rick

before oiling, clean shaft up nice and shiney with emery cloth,

then appy the penetrating oil, cleaning the shaft first will help in removal

Pulley don't line up? Maybe if you have parts blow up, might check if shown. If no alignment needed then leave alone. Hate to see any damage and maybe not needing fixed?

Had to remove mine a few years ago to rebuild the gear box. Finally gave up and cut it off. New one was around $70, iirc. Before you go that route, make sure replacement pulley is still available.

I had one like that I drilled 3 holes in it then put my wheel puller in the holes I drilled. They only have to be big enough to get your wheel puller tangs in , I think 1/2 or 9/16 bit is what I used. But depend on your wheel puller.

Definitely want to be careful as it looks like that pulley would be easy to bend. Might want to make sure there isn't a set screw inside!

I tried that and it bent.

I tried that and it bent.

I put my holes as close to the shaft as possible and had no issues. When I put the puller on it got a bit tight at first and I was starting to worry but it slid and once it did I knew I was bringing the bacon home, it was easy street after that.

I recently tore down a snowblower as well.  I found a cheap "parts" unit.  I cleaned up the shaft with emery cloth, soaked the shaft/pulley hub with penetrating oil, & put the bolt back in the shaft.  Install a couple wedges behind the pulley, gave it few good whacks with a 4 lb. hand-held sledge hammer, it come right off.

I am at the same point with my machine right now... don't see any setscrews.... have blower on blocks nose down, 1st stage blower bearings out, (trying to use the weight of the gearbox and augers to help it move)  heating the hub and soaking... I am gonna have to block the pulley up off the housing to make room for the shaft to move enough so the woodruff key doesn't hit against the flange bearing to prevent the shaft from being able to drop down thru the pulley...   you say you think that your pulley was on backwards? Mine is on the same way as yours so yours probably isn't/ wasn't backwards.

The guy that fixed mine for me(I'm not even remotely equipped to do this kind of fabrication/cutting work) had to cut mine down to get a puller on it as it was badly damaged to start with, new pulleys from Ariens are expensive, I got a good pulley from a walk behind with a riveted in hub, took the saved center from the original and made a center and trued it up on a lathe. I'm into mine around $300, 100 purchase price, 100 for repair, rest covered parts and fuel.

I didnt get the big torches out but I heated it with a MAPP torch til the hub was a dull cherry red but could only get it that way in any one spot... took a long time to get there, at one point I thought it moved a bit, looking under the pulley I see a spot on the shaft behind the pulley about 1/16-1/8" where it looks like it might have moved that far, I would have thought that if it moved that far that would be enough to unseat it and it would have come all the way... but maybe it hasn't... I know that pulley doesn't rub against the back bearing, maybe that is just "dirt" from sitting in that one spot on the shaft for so many years....  I had it cherry'd  right where the woodruff key sits and again (not at the same time) about right across from it.  gonna have to get the big torch out I believe... I am doing all that I can to save the pulley but it is looking more + more like it may have to be sacrificed.... I wonder if I cah get one that size from the industrial bearing supply house in town?  Don't want to give Jack's $73 just for a pulley....

well its fubar'ed, went to have another go at it today, i left a couple of wedges stuck in there for a couple of days and no dice, spun it to see that it is now bent...

I stuck a 5/16" bolt in the end of the shaft and was hitting on it, had a couple of glancing blows catch the corner of the bolt head and I got the pulley instead the otherd ay when I 1st tried... so now its time to be cut off and I get to find another pulley... oh, joy.
