Removal of Engine Pulley from a B&S

My question to the forum is how do I remove the engine pulley from a Briggs & Stratton 7hp snowblower engine.
I have removed the two set screws and sprayed penertrating oil into the holes. I waited a hour or so for it to soak in.
I then heated the pully and used a two prong pulley remover with no luck. I noticed that there is steel key that slips into a groove on the crankshaft and pulley. I think this is why the pulley is not slipping off. Is there a way to remove this key.

Any help would be helpful.

Thank you

The key is what keeps everything from turning on the crankshaft and will shear before damage is done to the crank. Spray the shaft with penetrating oil and give it a few whacks with a hammer to get some vibrations started for the penetrating oil to work, repeat the process several times and let it set overnite and it should come off with the puller. Have a good one. Geo

Thanks Geo

I'll soak the crankshaft and pully with the oil. It's an old engine, 1974. So it will be a bit cranky. Like most of us old farts are, LOL
