There's aren't any. Ferris heated the pulley up and then installed it. The pulley cooled and now has a Vise-Grip lock on the shaft. Heat the pulley with an acetylene torch and it will pop right off. You must be fast and use a lot of heat. If you take your time it will also heat the shaft and never come off.

I know I had a Toro like that several years ago.
I also thought it could be a snap ring. Better have a set of snap ring pliers and it's best to replace them rather than put them back on.

When all else fails a 4.5" grinder with a metal cutting blade will surgically (better yet barbarically) remove the pulley.
