If you have a puller that is the safest & easiest way to remove the pulley without breaking it.

Somewhere in our Manuals Section was a Delco-Remy brouchure on repairing starter generators. Good Luck, Rick

What?  Impact knocks them off with little holding and after that isn't it only a slight tap of plastic hammer and it falls off? OR, at least not that tight at all?  Heck, even later car/truck alts, had NO key and just had to tap them a bit and slid right off? I'm not familiar with this brand you speak, but most by Delco are same and shouldn't be a big issue wouldn't think?  OK, I'm done, going away now!

Most times they slide right off, and the nut comes loose  if they have been outside and rusted up  the nut is a bit harder to get off you use the impact to shock the nut free.
