I am in the process of cleaning up the gearbox and putting in fresh lubricant (corn head grease) and wanted to remove the gearbox from the snow thrower support. To do so, I need to remove the 7" V-belt pulley on the gearbox so I can get it through the hole in the support. Naturally the pulley is frozen on. I have a 3 arm puller but I am sure it would just bend the pulley. I saw some posts where they tack welded a rod on the hub of the pulley but I do not have a welder so I need another way. I have the cover off the gearbox and was wondering if I pull the slip ring off the gear can I pull the shaft with the pulley on out or is that a pressed on gear?
