I took the above picture from a post by Marty182 back in 2007. Unfortuantly I have the same problem. The threads on the end of the shaft survived and are in good shape. I have another pulley assembly that I am going to try and take apart and put on the original shaft. So far that hasn't been easy either. I won't get back to it until this weekend. If anybody has experienced this problem, I would like to hear how you fixed it. I would still like to get the old shaft out if possible, but it is really frozen in there. Any miracle workers out there. Thanks for any advice you can throw my way.
