>I purchased a 2hp VS motor for my Nova 3K. As luck would have it I ordered it on Monday and it got here yesterday. Anyway other that not having a 220 circuit run yet I'm having a problem with the old motor. I can't get the motor pulley loose. I have taken out the set screw and verified it wasn't stacked on top of a second one. I have been able to drip some penetrating oil into the set screw hole but no joy yet.
Any suggestion on how to get the pulley off? I could get a bigger hammer but don't want to crack the cast iron motor mount plate.
