Having trouble installing fan pulley

Postby Steve Ruddy » Sat May 08, 2004 1:23 pm

I tried a threaded rod with some washers and a nut and got it on about half way and the thrads started stripping. Any tips? Do I need to have a threaded rod made out of harder material?

I guess I'll try heating it up like Donny said in this thread and use the same zinc threaded rod.

Success! I heated it up to 220 like Donny said and I also put wd40 on the shaft and threaded rod threads as well as using a stonger nut and washer.

Steve, I was trying to reply to you and either my computer or the forum was hanging up. Yes, heat is the answer as you now know!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Ha Ha Thanks Donny! I obviously was to anxious to wait for an answer. Luckily I found your thread! I also used what I had to push in the pulley. It was the slotted bar that was part of the puller I bought from Grainger to use with the bearing seperator to take the pulley off.

Steve,

Glad you got the pulley back on without using a trailer hitch. :lol: :lol: :lol: It may have been a challenge to get it on but I know it wasn't as bad as taking it off. We're all looking forward to seeing your Cub running again :!:
