If they are still on there enough to stay on without issue. I'd stop and reserach it more before you go to far and can't get use the truck. Maybe Oleg has an idea or you can bring it by the shop and have Yuri get them off.

edit: or over to Tom's house

Way to keep after it. Nothing like 4 nuts to turn a half hour job into a days work... gotta love cruisers!

You mean you did not re-use the old nuts??? You just got them how you wanted them.

Well, at least you can SEE them! On my Sidekick, the pulley is dished the other way, and the nuts are down inside the pulley - you have to use a mirror just to see 'em. That's where you earn your money, doing a timing belt on the Kick. The rest is a breeze.

This whole thing reminds me of a song by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show...Get my rocks off...
