I've got one with the spun pulley. This one has a nut that retains the pulley rather than a clip. I initially tried to grip the lower part of the input shaft to spin the nut off and inspect the shaft, but to no avail. It looks like the transaxle and carrier have to come out. Any tips for an easier R&R?

I usually cock the pulley hard to one side and unscrew the nut. I would replace the fan while you are there. Worst case, remove the rear fender deck so you will have easier access. A lil drill with socket or impact works great.

What year X304 do you have? The earlier ones had a slightly more robust K58B transmission and almost certainly would have unique internal parts...I suspect the external pulley is the same though...

X324- oops, but much the same. I think that it is a K58. In the manual it looks like they want you to drop the T/A , but also remove the rear steering shaft. Instructions for that start up front by removing the steering wheel and of course the body. I doubt that the pulley cocked over will hold the shaft when a vice grip wouldn't- but you know that I'm going to try. This pulley is really hogged out, at least it feels that way. Maybe it broke off the hub. I just need to spend more time with it this next week.

Should anyone run into this in the future, it is completely doable by pulling the body / tank and removing the bolts at the rear of the steering shaft enough to slide the pulley onto the shaft. Used xcopterdoc's cock the pulley trick zipped off with an impact. Thanks for your insight.
