i removed the rear pulley, removed the big bolt at the rear, but i couldn't get the thing out with the hammer.
all i managed to do is to bend the pulley faces.
when i hit on the center threaded piece, it doesnt do anything, the pulley faces only separate from each other, that's the only thing my hit does.
Also, after playing with the pulley for a while, i managed to realize than the pulley could separate more from each other when i made a 90degree turn from each other.
this enable the 2 plates to separate completly when using screwdrivers.
the opposite also happened. If i turned the 2 plates from each other on the opposite side, i couldn't open the faces anymore, even with screwdrivers. They were kind of locked together.
so i decided to place the 2 plates in the position where they could open, and i made a mark on each plate to remember to align those 2 mark.
re-assemble the moped, and tryed it...
each time i pedal to start the moped, the faces moves from each other and taking the position where they cannot open, and they lock together.
The positive fact: Now i know what's the real problem... THE REAR PULLEY.
The negative fact: I don't know what to do, this is stupid, and i feel completly numb.... and noob.
Usually, some explanations are allright and i can do pretty much everything... but not now.
I must have played 2 hours with the pulley, trying to open it.
Honda made so much pullers and special tools for this moped...if i had all these, it would be a lot easier...
The only thing i really want to know is how you managed to separate the 2 pulleys faces completly from each other.
like i told, when i hit the threaded part, it only separate the 2 faces, but they pop back together.
