When installing a new drive belt, it is important to seat it well inside the driven pulley (the one with the clutch) before installing it inside the transmission case and onto the drive pulley (the one on the left).

To do this, one needs to pull the driven pulley halves apart and squeeze in that belt. But how do these two pulley halves come apart? Easily! This video shows how:

This service is going to be something I need to do this summer. Thank you for demonstrating how to get the belt to seat inside the drive pulley!

This is absolutely wonderful!
Seating the belt in the driven pulley was the hardest part of the job last time.
I didn't even know about the arrows on the belt.
I assume I got lucky when I changed it last time because it hasn't broken yet.

Thanks again!
