Answers :

You probably already know that removing the retainer nut is necessary but not sufficient.

There is a puller tool made for this job. It has a six-armed casting (arranged for 3 and 4 bolt patterns) with a large screw having a tapered end in a threaded hole in the center.

To use it, place the tapered end of the screw in the corresponding center hole on the end of the crankshaft, then run bolts through the slots in the arms into the threaded holes in the plate part of the pulley. Hand tighten the bolts until they are evenly tensioned (you may need to run the center screw in or out to get the proper reach on the bolts). Once the tool is installed, tighten the center screw with a wrench or socket. This will pull the casting away from the crankshaft, and the pulley with it. There will be half-moon or box-shaped retainer key in a slot on the crankshaft; that is what jams the pulley into place. You might be able to reuse it, but replacement is recommended to make sure the pulley doesn't come off.
