You can get a manual with a parts list/diagram at http://powertool.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/harbor_freight_tools/42976.html

The manual may give you some insight into how to remove the pulley.  Also check for similar manuals at Grizzley.com and use-enco.com.  These manuals are usually much better than those from Harbor Freight.

never mind, i got it off. i tapped it with a hammer and it slid right off. i just completly disasembled the mill and cleaned and re-lubed everypart. i also tightened the gibs and now this thing is runnin super smooth. just gotta make a dro mount for it and it should be a pretty nice machine. Ive also been searchen cl for a 10x30 lathe but its pretty hard to find a nice one for a steal.
