Step by step on a 93?
Get a large pair of channel locks, take say an old inner tube from a bike, wrap the old pulley with the tube, one layer thick, remove the lock nut on the end while holding the pullley stationary, carefull not to wreck any of the tracks in the pulley
Buy a Three Jaw pulley remover from basically any automotive store, read the instructions, use as it shows.
Old pulley should pop right off after a certain ammount of work.
New pulley went on easy enough on my car, i used a dead blow rubber mallett and CAREFULLY tapped it home.
re install the lock nut, make sure the SC pulley is exactly the same distance away from the nose cone as the original one was, this will save your belts if that pulley is riding in the original location

KR, you will WANT to buy a scan tool, I have one coming to me here today. It will tell you how many degrees of KR you are getting say at Wide open throttle. To battle KR, make sure your air intake, aftermarket ofcourse, is flowing at optimum, design an air box around it, (see my your ride thread for the simplest design), Try to add ONE 2" air duct to the air box were the filter will get direct colder air from under the car somewere, position the duct somewere in the front of the vehicle fastend to something so it doesnt move or blow away. Mine is just behind my headlight for now, it gets good air at highway speeds.

Doing a forum search will also come up with many posts on people doing this, im sure somone has pictures some were..

This was the first time I did any performance work to my car, but two years + on the forum, i have absorbed some knowledge, kinda like a spounge

Most change the belt when doing this procedure...I use the old belt to hold the pulley. However if you can probably loosen the nut before removing the belt.

Loosening the pulley nut before removing the belt won't work on a S1. At least not on mine. I use an old belt rather than a bike tire, but the same effect. Or you can use an impact wrench.

1993, we've got a good 2 dozen Series 1 cars here that have done it. Try a strap wrench, and a breaker bar with a long handle for the nut.
