    I have ransomes 36m with a Kawasaki fb460v that is dead. I am going to purchase a new motor but am having trouble pulling the variable speed pulley and blade pulley off of the crankshaft. I have taken the spring and top half of the variable speed pulley but am stuck there. Any suggestions?

    Check to see that they both don't have an allen-type set-screw holding them to the crankshaft. They usually do. Also, use a penetrating fluid along the shaft where the keyway is. Finally use a puller to remove them. Good luck.
