The timing belt came off and ground into the housing. After removing the split ring/washer, I"m trying to remove the blower from the housing to replace the timing belt but the blower won't come out completely, just about 2/3.

Other than the timing belt being melted onto the shaft, is there any reason the blower-driven gear-shaft won't come out?

Any suggestions on getting the blower off?

Thank you.

I know it is 4 years down the line from when this was originally posted, but I am having the exact same problem with the exact same sander.

If you found a solution, or if anyone else has a solution I would greatly appreciate it.

the blower housing(C) and blower coupling, this will expose blower( D).
