If it's the kind with the external fan, I removed one by putting a pipe wrench on one of the blades of the fan and removing the nut with a long breaker. Hope that works out for you

It's not too difficult to do with a impact. I just leave the belt on it and break it loose with an impact, then remove the belt and take the nut the rest of the way off.

Or you could do like this poor boy (me) who can't afford an impact wrench, put a wrench or socket on the pulley belt with a breaker bar slipped over the end of the wrench/ratchet and hold onto it reeeeeeal tight, then have a friend crank the engine over just once for each bolt, however many there are. I had to do this to put on my underdrive crank pulley

I got to see if Mike is done puting his new winter beater together this weekend.
