Quick engine rebuild question

So I purchased a svt engine and im almost to the point of removing the crank but I have the timing belt gear in the way (behind the crank pulley). Just curious on what to use to remove it. I was thinking pulley puller but id have to rent that so just curious before I head out and grab something.

Tap around on it , most cases it just slides off by hand , tap a screw driver in behind it if needed to work it free and to get it moving

once you remove the bolt holding it on, slides right off (but i live in a salt free area, so like tom said, might need something to pry)

I suggest a big hammer and a flamethrower Jeff . Just kidding, I had to use a pry bar on mine when I removed it. I live in the salt belt also so mine was siezed up about the same way. Just give it some jiggling and it usually works itself free.
