Snapper 524 with Predator engine swap

What's up Guys, so finally we got enough snow in Northern jersey to use the blower for first time after engine swap.
I have a couple of questions hopefully one of you guys can help, I got the Auger to work but didn't get good tension on gears belt.

Last Thursday, I managed to push the the 524 with no gearing & one tire w/ no air in it(tried to put air at gas station, pump apparently doesn't have enough pressure to pump air into small tires) got to do my driveway, walk way & help out a lil of my sides neighbors, was too tired to keep helping others.....over wknd got air in tire at a mechanic shop, no flat.

So I was beat after that but one question is how do I take off this pulley from old engine, I need red piece to get more tension on gears belt. What do I need to pull it out?
I've tried hammering out, doesn't work.

as you can see the blower was used but on an unorthodox way, was better than shoveling the whole thing, even though old man 2 houses from me would of helped like he usually does, but I need to help out bc he's getting older, so can't depend on his blower.

thanks in advance

Did the original motor have to shafts? It looks like it used a camshaft pulley.

yes it did, the swap consists of going from 2 shafts to 1, that pulley doesn't want to come out.....

There should be a small set screw on the pulley. Loosen that, spray with PB Blaster, and then use a puller. I've used a pitman arm puller on a similar pulley with good success.

On another note, what are your plans for the old engine? Specifically, the electric starter.

I took the small screw off, put pb blaster & it wiggled a lil, I was looking for a puller at home depot & harbor freights, no luck. Just checked & Advance Auto has them.
I was going to put the electric starter on ebay or craigslist, maybe some one has use for it, if you want it make an offer shipped to you...
Thanks
