Can't pull dead pressure washer pump off engine shaft.

I've got a Briggs & Stratton engine with this pump.

The pump burned up from having no oil in it so I need to replace it. The problem is I cannot get the housing off of the shaft and I am afraid to use too much force. I'm not sure if it is supposed to just slide off or what. How much force/beating can the engine shaft take?

here is a picture of where I am stuck.

It should just slip off, but sometimes we're just not that lucky. I've had to cut them off before, one layer at a time until I got to the shaft. The shaft can take a bit of abuse, but don't get the big hammer after it.
