Westwood T1200

I have two Westwood T1200's. One has a smokey engine (piston/rings need replacing) but otherwise good condition. The other is rather tired (slightly older model) and has a well-stretched drive belt, that keeps falling off the pulleys when I depress the clutch/brake.

I was thinking of swapping the engines over but can't remove the engine drive pulley (is L/H or R/H thread?). Or swapping the drive belts but can't figure out how to get the belt off the rear pulley, on top of the gearbox.

Can any kind person offer advice/information on either/both of these problems please?

No one here in my shop has ever heard of a Westwood. But, the engine thread should most certainly be standard, right-hand thread. As for the belt removal from the rear pulley, you'll have to inspect and attempt since, again, no knowledge of this machine...Or perhaps dropping the tranny slightly.
