Ultima 3" belt drive question!

First hello from Dayton, Tn.
I'm installing a Ultima belt drive is there a tool out there I can buy to help hold the pulleys from spinning so I can torque both the nuts? I tried the search function on this forum first and couldn't find any answers. Another question can I get the two tools that BDL sales to lock up their pulleys to tighten the nuts? Thanks for any info on this.

I have used w/o any problems an electric impact wrench[ Although Some hard core guys argue against it, especially on the crankshaft nut...] . Using the impact wrench- i could hold the pulley with my hand.

I have a bar I welded up that I can bolt to the pulleys using the small bolts that hold the covers, it hold the pulleys nicely...I'm not at all against using an impact though.

all you need is a piece of 1 1/4'' x 1/4'' hardwood or nylon or brass bar cut to length (not in the workshop so I forget the exact length) ....real easy to do (SEE PICTURE) front pully nut is std right hand thread and the clutch nut is left handed,... to undo the front pully nut the bar is placed left end down, right end up and to do it up its placed the other way....where it says ''sprocket'' read ''Pulley'' and where it says ''Chain'' read ''Belt'' ...works every time .....

I removed both nuts with an impact wrench and they came off really easy. I'll give the wood a try. Thanks!!

never do them up with an impact gun,... a buddy stripped the threads off of his crank using one!!!.... cost him lots of Beer tokens to fix....... use a Torque wrench to do them up,.... the wood block works a treat,.... and cheap as feck !!

I've used an impact for over 2 decades on these, and never had a problem.
