|Removal of 4 bolts gives access to the lower pulleys on the drive shaft. There is a plate holding a bearing (removed), the stationary pulley, belt, movable pulley, bearing, bearing plate and the speed adjustment rod. Actually both pulleys move but the first is prevented from travel by the back plate, no set screw is needed.|
|That said, I still needed the pulley remover to get the pulley off for lubrication.|
|Now clean and lubricate everything and put it back in place.|
|I double nutted the end of the all thread to be sure I did not do anything stupid and applied tension with the headstock nut to draw the cap and spring into place.|
|It takes a bit of jiggling to get the spindle out through the cap. Use the bolts to press the cap in so the snap ring is free and use a magnet to bring it up.|
|Once the snap ring is in place, replace the covers and you are done. The belt will be loose until you first turn on the lathe.|
Let me know if this is a help.
