Is there any way to remove the belt without pulling the primary or breaking it off?

Trying to put in new springs and cant get the secondary to open so I can get the belt off.

Any tips??

I got the puller. It takes about 1 minute once you have the cover off. I got mine from epi. I think it was $20. Worth every penny

I haven't used a puller yet and it's easy to do without it IMO. I took the handle of a hammer, put that on top of the belt on the secondary, then took a mallet and pounded the belt down into the secondary....only need to drive it down 1/4" or so. The belt walks right off then. Just make sure you don't scrape the sheaves is all....don't wanna be scratching those up.

A puller is easier, but if you don't have it and you need to change it, this way will get you taken care of.

I agree with Sanny, I only spin mine off....and spin the new one one...sometimes 4 hands work best. if your not gonna use it....cut er off.....
