I think you find you need a simple puller.
these are very tight so they tend to stick.
i think they have 2 threaded holes.

the early model had a removable outer pulley so you didnt need to get the center.

the top cover maybe.
i think you can also remove the lower cover with the pulley on.

it does not go behing the belt.
