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?

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
