Am I just not strong enough to loosen the nuts and take the spindle off, because I tried that to no avail.
Lesco has two different belt guides. One is just a tube over a carriage bolt topped off with a nut to hold it in place. Once you get the nut loose, you might have to tap the guide or even remove the carriage bolt. The other style is shaped like a L and is just held on with a bolt. Just loosen the bolt a few turns and it should move out of the way for you. Both will need a 9/16 socket. If you have to, get a breaker bar and a small piece of pipe to help give you alittle more leverage, just be careful.
