Yes, you do have to put some preload in when you put it back together. & yes sometimes when you take them apart they are really stuck. Did you put some anti-seize on the sliding surfaces of the shaft & bore?

Also, can you get a fish scale? Find out what the preload (in the 15 lb area) should be. Take the belt off the secondary & doo the following:

What I've been told is you place some emory cloth on the sliding half of the secondary, so that when you clamp a pair of vise grips on at the outer circumference, you don't mark the surface where the belt runs.

Attach the fish scale to the vise grip as close to the sec. as possible & pull. When the pulley half starts to move, check the reading on the scale. You may have to disassemble the secondary & change the spring hole combination to get the right preload.
