Default removing crank pulley with engine on a stand

I've got my z6 on the stand today and got it mostly tore down. The only thing still in the block is the crank which has the pulley on it. How the hell can I get this thing off? I'm getting a pulley without the power steering belt slot on it, so I dont care if I screw the pulley up. I had trouble getting my old one off with the car in 1st gear and on the ground with a 4ft cheater bar on my 1/2in ratchet. Any ideas?

dito. my dads air gun was strong enough to pull 2 of them off with out flenching! but if you dont care about reusing the pulley...... do you have a welder? and some scrap steel? weld some plates to its face and bend them over to act as a STOP for the pulley.

I dont have any access to an air compressor or a welder. I was thinking about drilling some holes in it and putting a long bar on it. On a side note, I ordered my Tuner Toys rods yesterday and the vitaras will be ordered next week

well if ya got a drill and some hardened bolts you can still make your own stop bars for it...

simply drill one hole on each side of the pulley and bolt a bar or something to it running across the pulley, just be sure to keep the front area across the pulleys retainer bolt is open for the wrench

you dont have to bolt/nut the hardened bolts you just sticking them thru the whole should hold just fine.

24' chain wrench and a breaker bar does the trick on mine. And remember to put a little anti-seize on the threads so it wont be such a bitch next time
