Ariens Blower Sheave (pulley) Replace

Ariens blower, ST1032 (10 hp, 32 inch), model #924073, 24 years old.Snow is falling here in Michigan's UP and I need to replace the sheave (pulley) that is connected to the same spindle (shaft) as the Friction Drive Plate. The nut on the end of the spindle must be removed but I can't keep the spindle from turning by holding the sheave, as the center of the sheave has failed. I don't want to clamp the Friction Drive Plate as it is light aluminum and I fear warping or breaking it. Figure if I can't get help here I'm resigned to bringing it to a dealer. Thanks. Reg

what about putting a pipe wrench on the hub?

I would disassemble as much as you can, then take it to a garage where they can put an impact gun on it.

Those nuts usually aren't crazy tight... if you have a helper you might be able to do it by using leather gloves and holding the friction disc in your hands and have the other person try to loosen the nut.

Otherwise as another poster indicated, an impact gun will take care of it quickly.

I would avoid using the impact gun to *tighten* the nut... it doesn't need that much torque.

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Heat Red the nut with a torch. They usually had threadlock on them. Also, on some models, on the pulley there is a hole you can stick a screwdriver through to hold it.

My Milwaukee 1/2" cordless impact zips that nut right off

Appreciate the replies. Didn't have an extra pair of hands to hold the friction disk and shaft is too short to attach a pipe wrench. Impact wrench removed the nut easily, without having to hold the friction plate. Used the impact to replace the nut, but used the power sparingly (1/2" drive impact) as didn't want to strip the threads. No doubt I had a "senior moment" as didn't even think of the impact. Thanks to all.
