Guide to change pulley
« on: April 27, 2010, 06:27:37 pm »
Hi im fitting a 65 MM pulley.
is there a brief guide of how to do it and what tools are needed.
Is it best to get a new belt?
Thanks

Isit a toothed pully or a 65mm twinV, if its the twin V just loosen of the charger, unhook the belts and remove the pully with a chainwhip, sorta like a pushbike chain, it holds the pully whist you undo the bolt holding the thing on, only change the belts if they need changeing, no point in throwing money away! o and when you put the bolt back in locktite it in, last thing you want is it coming loose!

Its a 65mm twinV. The chain whip like the ones used to get oil filers off that are crap? ha

Yeah cheers for the advice,

How would it run without a chip to suit?

Cheers

Wrap an old bit of V belt round the pulley before using the oil filter chain wrench thing to avoid damaging the pulley.

Can you run without chip?
How does it differ?

yes you can run it without a chip, it'll make less power though.

You can also use a G-clamp on the pulley which is a good method.
