    Is the belt still on? Can you hear the clutch kicking in when the engine is off but you hit the blast button?

    Check that you are getting power to the clutch when you hit the button. I cant remember if the clutch is switched hot or switched ground

    They can be a real pain to do...I had to change one and it took LOTS of heat and a gear puller...something that I thought was going to take 30 minutes took 4 hours! Good luck to you
