how to remove pulley from alternator
06 caravan 3.8
Want to remove pulley to replace new pulley on alternator. Can i put a hex socket or conventional socket (size?) to enter through the entrance of the pulley turn it counter clockwise while holding the shaft of the alternator with a belt to hold the pulley as it turns?
Frankly i don't know what it looks like inside of the entrance to remove it.
I saw a hand made tool but directions are sparse and pics doesn't reveal enough without explanation
I know i can buy 60.00 tool to remove it and then another 50 for the pulley, but budget won't allow both. advance doesn't even have an alternator with the decoupler pulley on it, besides it's a 160 bucks and i don't have a bad alt.
i saw video saying the oad is necessary or other pulleys will get too much tension and shorten their lives.
