pulley help?

Hello, i havent purchased one yet, but i was wondering if i get a 15% pulley and belt from ALTA, is there anyone that could install it?
also is there a company that installs mini mods here?
(or is it pretty much, you have to do it yourself in MN)? thanks!

I've done 4 pulleys with the help of a friend. I'm sure we could be persuaded to do another one.

The only tool that we do not have, is the pulley puller. We also don't have a tensioner tool, but we've been successful just using our own setup.

There were a couple of other interested parties in Mpls that posted last week about this same interest. Sounds like we will have enough to do a Pulley Party in the spring!!

I'd show up at a pulley party! It's gettin cold and I don't have a heated garage so maybe after we begin to thaw. Does it take a long time? Any tips, tricks? I just like the idea of going faster !

JK,
Is that still going to happen? any Idea when?

Also, Orr Autosport, in Eden Prairie is an ALTA dealer and will install most anything, parts and labor for the pulley is $390

Oh man let me know how much you would want for labor, if you can do it for cheap then ill order the pulley and belt from ALTA this week. that would be amazing. i don't have all this money to spend for labor at orr even though im sure they are very good at what they do it sucks having to pay $300 to install a $100 part. : O

I have the craven 15% pulley, and just replaced the belt with a NAPA belt (25-060535).

The only tool we don't have is the pulley puller, at least I don't think so. I'll check with my friend.

Labor cost for our last garage day was beverages and grill items. We're cheap!!
