I believe thats the end of the crankshaft sticking out the middle.  You need to sand all the rust off that you can possibly get and then soak it in penetrating oil.  They can be stuck bad.  When you go back together put some Anti-Sieze on the crank so it never rusts on there again.

  

If you have a puller that should help but go easy.

DO NOT pry on the fan/pulley!   That is pot metal and will break instantly. 

Good Luck!!

I had similar experience on my simplicity 700 briggs. It wouldn't budge. spray it with pb blaster and try again next week. that's what I did and a week later it popped right off.
the correct briggs puller is a must too

if it broke I would be ok with that has long as the crankshaft didn't break. I putting another one on with out the driveshaft adapter.

I agree with Gtractor. Soak it with penetrating oil and grab the flange with a big pair of channel lock pliers and try rotating the adapter to try to get it to free up. Don't grab the small nub sticking out. Here is a pic of the assembly for any help and the bolt sizes may not be the same as yours, it is from a different model. Hope this helps.

Tap on it with a small hammer then turn it.The drive coupler isn't on the crank very far.It's on there Maybe 3/4".There is no woodrif key on either part.So turning it back and forth will loosen it up.Take the belt off before trying to remove the booster fan if you can.

 

That's the same coupler that is on my 2 Gilson Hydro 16s and Montgomery Wards 16 twin.That stub sticking out isn't the crankshaft.
