Yes you do...

After that...hold secondary as close the end of shaft as possible and use a 2 x 4 or aluminum sq or rect tubing to pry against end of primary shaft (with cage removed) against seat frame rail to move motor enough to allow secondary sheave to slip off secondary shaft...

You can use steel pry bar but be very careful not to damage threads on shaft...

It is very easy and takes only 1 second to get it off once you are pre-pared...

No instructions from Todd on that...???

If I remember right, once you compress the spring the nut really isn't torqued on all the much.....

And the stock rim trick works great. I only weigh 200lbs so I added a couble bags of rock salt....... bags of cement works too....... cases of beer.....

Stand next to a wall for balance if you're flying solo... :fingersx:

The socket is 1-13/16" to remove the nut...

The torque spec is 65 ft/lbs...

To remove the spring hold the sheave on the floor with your feet and zip the nut of with air impact...

Use your body weight to hold the spring down so it won't damage threads when it comes off...

To re-install...use wheel/tire with two people or make a simple spring compressor with sq tube steel or thick wall aluminum...threaded rod...and use a wheel spacer to retain the cup...compress spring and finger tighten the nut...then put it on the floor...hold with feet...impact nut on...don't over do it but make sure its on goodntite...
