You gotta get a pipe over the shaft so it is on the pulley and pound the pulley in. Emory cloth the back side of the shaft, and when you get it to move off the key, shine up the shaft on the way out. My pa broke a EXPENSIVE pulley on my 76 trying to pry out a gib key like a retard. I got home and had the pulley off in 10 minutes. Though by then it was in two parts. 82 combines have a couple as well, once I ran them a few times they are OK, but DEFINATELY not preferred. Some guys build pullers out of truck leaf springs, I don't really understand how they are supposed to work. As long as my pipe, mauls, emery cloth and PB blaster work I don't have to do anything special for as often as I have to mess with one. The stuck ones sure can be buggers. BEAT THAT PULLEY IN!!! Trying to pull out before you push in is a sin!!!

I love IH!!! I own three Super M's, 826GD with diamond cab, 1130 MF (the ugly duckling), 5288.
Starting dairy farming in 2007... What a ride. Record highs, record lows, record rains, record droughts...
Milking Holstiens (red and b&w) and Jerseys on our 70 cow operation. God bless small American Farms...
I enjoy dairy farming with my wife and custom harvesting with an assortment of New Idea Uni huskers, shellers, choppers, and combines (703,705,708x2,709RWA with 767,737,717x2,858 attachments). I combine small grain and soybeans with IH 315 and 82 (with pickup head) combines. Collecting 234 and 2-MH/2M-HD era pickers and shellers and attaching hardware.
