You'll have to remove the nut from the top pulley and then the shaft will drop down through the mandrel out the bottom of the deck.

Usually the vibration is caused by one short section of belt that is burned thin.

Well, I don't think you want to smack the shaft or you'll wind up ruining the threads, unless you use a block of wood or something like that. I don't think the shaft will go down until you get the pulley up and off, because of the key that holds the pulley in place....it won't fit through the bearings until the key is removed.

Are the bearings bad or something? Why are you removing the shaft?
