Drive pulley trials…

Gentle tapping with the persuading mallet will get the pulley to slide about 1/4″ along the shaft, but I can’t seem to get it any further… Got it to the point where I can fit a pry-bar behind  the pulley (between the crankcase and the pulley) and try to do some leveraging, but that doesn’t seem to go anywhere… It will slide back and forth (with assistance) about a quarter inch… Sooo… loading the set-screw hole with PB Blaster and breaking for lunch seems in order…  Then after lunch, I think I’ll cut some wedges outta 2×4 and pound one (gently) into either side of the space behind the pulley and see what that does…  Makes me feel better to NOT be wacking the pulley with the persuading mallet, ’cause I’ve seem a couple recently that are cracked…
