I would be cautious of putting too much tension on that belt. Couldn't you remove the belt and protect the drive pully with a few turns of soft rag and then hold it with some "Stilsons" while undoing the nut?

Regards

Richard they come up on ebay and regular dealers will get you one. but a stronger one can be made if you have any old clutch plates lying around two - one steel one friction - drill and bolt them together with perhaps three or for nuts and bolts, also fix on a good length of steel strip (remember to leave room for a socket in the centre).
they need to be lined up centrally as you would expect and a good length of steel strip allows it to come around and anchor on the footrest or the ground.

Here's one I made earlier
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco
