So I've got a shredded drive belt and need to change it. Kind of surprised it's got shreds hanging off since I've only got 9.3 hours. I did accidentally smoke the belt while loading it onto my trailer because my ramps are too steep and the bottom caught on the back edge of the trailer. My deflection seems to measure out fine right at about 1 1/8". So I'm planning to pickup and new belt and installing it, but I read somewhere that you need to remove the clutch to swap out a belt? I don't have a clutch puller tool. It seems to me that I could just remove the rear pulley to gain the clearance needed to install a new belt. Is this true?
