I picked up a new pulley for my s/c (2.2") and am ready to change it out but need some help on how to get the old one off. I don't want to destroy the old one by mashing it in a vise or something. I have tried those "grip wrenches" that look like they are made of fan-belt material but they don't grab tight enough. Anyone got a tip or trick I can use? Thanks.

Mine came off no problem...are you having problems with the whole pulley spinning when you try to loosen the nut?

I've found this to be one the most valuable tools in my toolbox:



It's called a chain wrench. Last I saw, Autozone was stocking them.

Yes the whole pulley is spinning. The chain wrench will probably be the ticket. It looks like it will operate the same as the grip wrenches I mentioned before but with more grab. Hopefully it won't damage the old pulley; maybe I will try something between them to keep it from scratching. Thanks for the input everyone.

We just used a set of channel locks and a rag for mine...that way you could grab onto the pulley without dmaging it.

And I hope you're not planning on putting the 2.2" pulley on before you get the 7th injector in...

I think the chain wrench will be better because it grips all the way around vs. the channel locks but I see how they could work. The s/c is sitting on my workbench right now and the 7th injector is already on it. It will all go in at one time but I thought it would be easier to change the pulley on the bench rather than in the truck. Can't wait... and it looks like I get to go buy another tool!

Yep, you can use a rag as YoTRacer recommended.

It's a great tool that you'll find uses for whenever you deal with any type of pulley in the future.
