How will you remove the pulleys? Nova 3000

Henry (Raleigh NC)
Sorry for the sidetrack of topics....

I have that lathe (infrequently used), and I have some trouble keeping the pulleys aligned (i.e. getting the main shaft pulley to stay in place). But moving (or removing) that pulley has been troublesome. Lathe is now back to the point of needing pulley realignment (to align the two pulleys - motor pulley and main shaft pulley). As I recall from previous attempts, this was not easy.

How do you do this? (presuming you need to change the bearings.

Note that I am not a machinist and while I do basic maintenance on my tools, I will likely never take on major restorations.

Thanks
Henry
