Q: timing belt on 1998 Mazda B2500

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
do you have to take the pulley off to replace the timing belt. Cannot get the belt on the crank shaft with the pulley on. Not enough room

Jimmy says : HA You must take an old chisol & pound
like mad, cutting the aluminium dirt-guard away about
one-half inch. Allows belt to be inserted w/o fly-wheel
removal. I would like feedback from expert on this .
B2500 now runs fine w new belt @ 130,000
