Ransomes help pulley

Hi i have a ransome 36 walk behind. I was trying to replace the pulley that is connected to the transmission shaft that drives the wheel belts loosened the grub screws couldn't get it off at all. Any ideas? I think the problem is it hasn't been off in 20 years.

Model number XM 3603

Put some wd40 or some kind of penetration oil. Let it sit for a few days and then try getting it off

On that particular mower there exists on the other side a C-clip on the axle, that needs to come off, then the entire axle should slide out. Worst case scenario is you loosen the two bolts/nuts that hold the bearing where the axle goes through the frame and then take it off but it would be better to just get the axle itself out.

Once you have the axle out, take it to a bench vise and press the pulley in tight with the pulley on top and the axle hanging straight down. Then, hold a 1/2" or so round steel punch or rod against the axle (inside the pulley) and pound it out with a big 5 pound hammer.

Getting the new one on should be much easier.
Don't forget the C-clip when re-installing.
You may want to run by Fastenal or the dealer and get some new ones, it would probably be best to replace those clips.
