1979 Craftsman Drift Buster

Hello, I am new to this forum, I recently bought a (see above). The auger bearing was blown, well I am trying to get the auger pulley off the shaft? Well I messed that up pretty bad. Unless someone can help me find a new one I guess I will part it out. Everything is great on it, but I cant figure out how to get that pulley off? Any ideas? Tried heat, pulley puller, soaking it with WD40 rust penetrate? The pulley now looks like a mushroom and the part number I have is out dated. I do have the owners manual for it, but that is no help at this point?

Sounds like the cutoff wheel is the way to go. cut the pulley straight across as close as possible to the hub, then cut the hub, slot from the cutoff wheel should loosen up the grip. careful not to go thru to the auger shaft and cut the side opposite the woodruff key if there is one.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...
