Topic tags/keywords: walker turner lathe l752 drive belt replacement

I have a Walker-Turner L752 lathe, pre-1939, passed down from my father, excellent condition. I want to replace the drive belt and have no manual. I have loosened and removed the stop collar and split ring on the headstock outboard end, loosened the allen screws on the pulley, and have tried to drive the spindle out through the inboard end with a rubber mallet. The spindle moves but is stopped by the pulley hitting the head frame. The headstock hasn’t been apart in decades to my knowledge. Is everything just rusted tight and will need to be pressed out by a machine shop? Other suggestions? Anyone have a manual or instruction sheet?

Does your lathe look like this?

Could not find a publication on this lathe. If it does might send this guy a message:

I have one just like it. Instead of taking everything apart, there is a link belt, it is segmented that would work better in this application. The process for driving the shaft back through the pulley assembly is timely. Segmented belt is much attractive. They about 40.00
