Color me Gone
oldfox said:Max and Smoothrod:
I am getting the pully to slide over the flanges. What is confusing me is that in taking off the stock pully, you first loosen the bolts, spin the pully to align with the flanges and then pull it off. So, in putting the new one on, I would think to align the pully with the flanges, slip it over the flanges, and then spin it to align with the holes to bolt on.
However, with the new pully I can only get it over the flanges, but not enough to clear the flanges and spin it to align with the holes for bolting. Maybe this new one does not need to be bolted.
I am making some progress, so please do't give up on me
THe new pulley goes on exactly like the old one came off. You align the three ears with the open area of the pulley, push it on until it clears the three bolt areas and then twist it into place and then bolt it down.
Maybe these pictures will help. The pulley is an exact fit, holding it perfectly parallel is imperative. If you get it cocked any at all it will bind and won't go on. After you get it forward enough to touch the hub flange then keeping it even so it will spin is easy because the hub holds it parallel at that point.
