GX345 Traction belt replaced do I need the pulley and fan too?

There is a little wobble in these, think I need to replace them?

Ok thanks. I was thinking I could tighten the nit and they would be fine.

There should be basically zero play between the pulley and the shaft. If you look at the splines in the pulley they are probably very sharp due to wear. The nut was probably loose.

You are correct they are sharp and it was loose. I'll buy a new one and install a new lock nut while at it. Does blue loctite help at all? Probably loose from the vibrations caused by the belt going bad.

Thanks for the reply.

You don't need Loctite.

Got the drive belt replaced thanks to all that provided advice. She seems to be awesome again!
