To remove things that don't want to be removed, I have had good luck with heat, cold, and liquid wrench type things. If it were my motor, I would:
- spray liquid wrench liberally around the shaft
- wait 10-15 minutes
- apply heat from a propane torch to the pulley (1 minute or so) (try not to get the shaft too hot, you don't want to put a lot of heat into the engine where you could damage seals)
- wait 10-15 minutes for it to cool
- try and remove the pulley with gentle taps from a hammer on a block of wood, pry bar, etc.

Can't help you with a replacement.
