If this looks like your water pump, then yes you can: The tilt in the pulley is caused not from a broke shaft, but from a worn bushing which the shaft rides upon. This is just one of the symptoms which shows up when the pump is dying a short miserable death. As the bushing wears out, there is created more and more space (slop) which allows the shaft to ...

Using a flat piece of metal, make a flat spanner with a length long enough to extend out of fan blades to fit the nut. With the 'spanner' on the nut and with a engineers hammer, strike the improvised spanner to undo the nut. The inertia of the ...

Instead of using a spanner to 'lock' just one of the pulley bolts, try to use a long implement similar to the "special tool" depicted in the diagram to lock two pulley bolts in place. I have found great success with water-heater mounting brackets since they are thin enough and do not ...
