Brent,

If it doesn't work then should admin remove that from Wiki?

Sorry I led you down that route.

All I see is the complete unit, not just the outer half.

It must have worked for somebody so I wouldn't remove it, it just didn't work for me.

I borrowed an impact wrench from my dad tonight so I'll give that a try tomorrow.

Also AF1. I think the part number for a 500 is 832697.

BTW the Buzzetti variator holding tool is $46. Subtracting the cost of a new half pulley ($30) plus the hassle and downtime, makes it seem like a pretty good deal.

You can make a variator tool with a bit of plywood. There is even a drawing of how to drill the holes. http://modernvespa.com/forum/wiki-specialty-tools

Dr. Pulley recommends 10 -15% lighter than stock.http://www.drpulley.info/drpulley_docs/Typenliste.htm

As you want to be conservative 10% then round up/down to the nearest Dr. Pulley weight and bingo.

Do not tighten the variator with a rattle gun use a proper torque wrench.

Well, I made my own just like in the pics and it cracked part of one of the fins off Even used 8 bolts to try to minimize any stress too.

Where the hell do I find the outer half of a variator now?

They only sell the complete unit from I can find. AF1 sells just the outer half.

You are headed down the right path now. Use an impact to remove it and a variator holding tool to tighten it back up with a torque wrench.
