I wouldnt reccomend using a torch unless u have tried every other possible way. And if u do end up heating the pulley to get it off, throw it out. Once super heated, they are no good. Try using a small 2 arm puller. There may be just enough room behind the pulley to grab onto, and see if u can pull it off the crank that way. If the puller can grab it, but it still wont come off, once u get a bunch of load on the puller screw, hit it with a hammer to "shock" it. This sometimes will loosen up a stubborn pulley.
