Okay, I REALLY need to change my timing belt, but I'm having a problem getting the v-belt pullies off. Everytime I try to lossen the bolts, the just spin the pullies. Do I need an airgun, or what?
I've got to get this done ... I'm mom is bitchin.

Try hitting the handle of your ratchet with a light hammer or some other object. Sometimes the impact of doing that will break stubborn bolts loose without spinning the pulleys.
