Pulley mechanism on shaft upside down
Hello. I just bought a used Troy Bilt Self-propelled push mower. It has a Briggs and Stratton 650 series (model # 7bsxs-1901vh) engine. A Belt is supposed to run from a pulley attached to the shaft where the blade is, to another pulley near the front wheel drive mechanism in order to propel. I went out and bought the proper belt, but the problem is that it looks like the pulley mechanism attached to the shaft was placed in there upside down. I say so because the belt doesn't line up properly when I attached it and it is definitely because of the pulley on the shaft being a bit lower than level. I took the bolt off in order to detach the plade and get to the pulley mechanism, but I don't see any way to remove the pulley mechanism in order to put it in right side up. It should be noted that the part also said "NH-Made in China" and read upside down. This is a very trick area to work right near the crankshaft and it looks like brute force may have been used to attach such a piece here. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!
Is this a good question?
