  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.

A jaw puller did the damage even after it was heated.

yeah a jaw puller on a pulley like that will damage your pulley every time; those pullies aren't that strong, it takes relative "nothing" to bend them.

It's too bad the pulleys didn't come with a grove around the hub like there are on car p/s pulleys or threaded holes in the hub ( might not be able on that small of hub )

  I don't see any holes drilled close to the hub for bolts.

  I don't see any saving it either. I was just passing on info for the next one. I had to do the drill holes and bolts thing on my TB Horse wheels and it still took lots of O/A heat and torque to get both off right down to the last 1/2" and they survived quite well.
