    I was removing the crankshaft pulley when the belt snapped. How do I remove the pulley now? Is it a reverse thread?

    Put a breaker bar on the nut and rest it on the frame. when the motor is cranked it turns clockwise so make sure your breaker bar rest under the frame and if its not long enough to put a pipe on the breaker bar. Make sure your cam gear is positioned to where the intake and exhuast valves are closed and crank the motor.
