1978 Ariens 824 Engine Sheave Removal
Folks, I have an older Ariens 824 and need to replace the idler arm spring behind the engine sheave. I have tried loosening the sheave nut and cant get it to move. It looks like normal direction threads and I dont see any pins. Any advice would be appreciated.
Are you sure you can't get to the spring with it in place? I pulled one off a smaller compact blower, but don't remember how I held it still. I think mine might have had a hole in it and I held it still with a screwdriver.
