    I would only do this if there was something supporting the motor, you don't want the screwdrivers flying off and doing you any harm. I would look for a ball joint puller - normally for windscreen...

    Are you planning to use the pulley itself? If not, I'd cut a slot into it down to the motor shaft with a Dremel or similar and then slide it off.

    From the ebay link, it has a circlip on the end of the shaft (The little black ring). You just need to push that bit off with a screwdriver or something and the pulley will slide off the D-shaft.
