If anyone is thinking about upgrading their pulley, I highly recommend getting a pulley puller like this, its actually for a Mini Cooper S, but it fits the 5.0l sc fine.
First wind of the nut and it started coming off with a brief crack, then wound all the way off with ease.

Looks a substantial bit of kit, that's up to the job.
Some pullers I've used, you'd think were made from butter.:confused:

You mind telling us how much it was?

It cost £60, I used a 30mm spanner against the steel bar to brace it and a 24mm ratchet spanner on the nut.
The pulley came off so easy, which I was surprised about. All the videos I watched online ended up with the pulley being cut off.

Also, the two bolts that came with it are not long enough, they needed to clear the nose of the pulley by a further 10mm so I used some M10x50 bolts.

M10 and M16 then - that should give plenty of ability. You'd have to go some to strip the threads of a M16 thread.

As for using spanners - its amazing the torques achieved if you use both spanners together. and tighten or loosen in both hands.

Watching people using spanners 180 degrees apart makes me cringe if/when one of them slips
