Removing alternator pulley

I removed the nut, but the fan/pulley isn't budging.  Is it just friction and rust holding it on there?  I can try some heat and a puller but I want to make sure I'm not missing a pin someplace.  Thanks for all the great info, I've been using this forum for a while but this is my first question.

Grab 2 screwdrivers or plastic trim tools and gently wobble the fan and pulley off of the keyway and shaft it should come right off perhaps get some penetrating oil first, once you see any wobbling try using your hand to wobble it the rest of the way off. Note: assure the key is still pressed in the slot.

I hold the alternator shaft vertical and by the fins and hit the shaft with a dead blow hammer.  Have a pad under it because the alternator is going to drop out of the fan.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

Thanks.  The hammer loosened it a bit, and the screwdrivers were able to work it off.  Took a lot of force, I was concerned about deforming the fan/pulley assembly.

 

A retaining clip magically appeared.  The retaining clip from the bushing came off in the process.  Very confusing for about 20 minutes.   I've had no luck finding an assembly diagram for the AL89X.  But that's what makes this fun, right?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
