    Would a 2 jaw puller pull straight? Might need to try a 3 jaw. Spray the heck out of the shaft with some penetrating oil if you haven't yet. If you can get a new pulley, you might need to cut the hub with a cutoff wheel to release the tension so it will pull off. Just don't cut into the shaft. I would try a some slight tapping on the hub, around the outside of it, gently.

    At the 2:30 position is that a key? If it is probably going to have to get that out first.

    My suggestion would be small screw driver tapping lightly outwards direction (after penetrating oil has been on there a while). Now my next suggestion may come with lots of negative comments but on very stuck bolts I put my propane torch on it for about a minute or so then try to loosen out, after it cools off just a bit being careful no gas or oil or grass can catch fire. And have an extinguisher handy.

    there are threads on shaft and it is help on with nut and washer . picture is bad. i took nut and washer off. i would think key is oval or fit into a slot on crank. i dont know how i would tap it out unless its a weird setup.
