Thanks for the replies but, I got it out before I read your replies.
After purchasing a dead blow hammer and a using a heavy swing it came loose. The issue was the pulley. It was stuck on burrs from the set screws. I then lightly filed the burrs off the spindle and honed out the pulley so it would slide more easily on the shaft. Also, I cleaned all the parts and lubed everything and reassembled the head stock.
Now, want a good laugh ? I did all that and didn’t put the drive belt on. So, I had to take it apart and install the new belt.
The next time (if needed) I will purchase a link typed v-belt.
All in all replacing the belt might be the easy part. Now, I have to have fun and learn how to use this thing,
Thanks again….
