    Main pulley removal from Countyline finish mower

    I am trying to replace the gearbox on my Countyline 72" finish mower, but I'm having trouble getting the main pulley off the output shaft. Anyone have any tips or tricks for getting the pulley off? There's millions of instructional videos on Youtube, but I haven't been able to find one about this.

    We have a railroad track about 200 yards from the house. I was exploring today and found this alongside the track. It looks like a PTO shaft going into a box. It looks like at one time there were hoses that came out up to a track junction and might have greased it in some way. I don't know...
