I like the Acetone/ATF mix myself! 50/50 mix, seems to work well!

take a punch and hammer and see if you can move the key at all, push it toward the inside (toward the motor) a bit.

of course if it has a "woodruff" key (the 1/2 moon ones) you wont be able to. 

many times that is where your hang-up is with getting something off of a shaft.

Since it's already destroyed, just cut it off.

Definitely blue wrench time on that one.  Just don't get into the shaft.

If you don't have a torch, you can use a cutoff wheel. It takes much longer, but will get the job done. Good luck! :)

What is that pulley for? looks kinda light duty. I agree it will need cut off. I don't have a torch, but have used a cut-off wheel. carefull around the shaft threads, I would spin a bolt on there, then cut into the pully (and bolt) to a point just above the shaft then use a chiesel to split the pulley.

You could make a puller something like this one.

Drill 2 holes on the pulley and put nuts and washers on the back.I made mine out of a piece of 1/2" thick by 1 1/2" wide steel bar stock 6" long with 7 holes in it.I had to use grade 8 bolts and weld a nut on the back for the big center bolt and grind a point on it.

You could use a Crows foot puller or Harmonic Balancer puller.Harbor Freight has them for $10-$15.

once you get it down to the hub cut that at the keyway, if you cut into the key no big deal, rather trash that than the shaft.

  Too late for this one, but next time drill two 5/16" or 3/8" holes 180* apart about 1/2" from the hub. then use the harbor freight puller like pictured or a two jaw puller w/ the jaws that fit over a bolt. May still require some heat but the pulley will survive.
