Need help / advise! How are you getting your crank nut off??

Tried many ways to immobilize. It's super tight. Sigh.

Thoughts?

in your pulley there is a hole that allows you to pin the pulley in place into a boss locate behind it. use an appropriately sized Allen key to do the task. you may not need a shorter belt; depends on how much smaller your new pulley is.

Damn!!!

That is because to install an under drive pulley, you need to machine some of that boss off.

It's a fraction of the size of the orig and needed a shorter belt.

WAY more power low end!!!! Zero other felt differences so far.
