This is the way to take off the idler:
Always avoid touching the drive parts - idler, speed pulley and inner platter rim that the idler runs on.
As you can see, I am placing my fingers under the idler and using a small screwdriver to push onto the shaft, giving me lift for the idler. Do not touch/turn the shaft. Once the idler is off, clean the shaft and re-lube with a drop of 10w30.
The complete 1019 restoration amongst others can be seen on my web-pages under Service tips. To access, just click the blue ball to the left.
My services for restoration is available, if desired. Simply PM me.
